More than just a spotlight on wacky family members and screwball situations ... a simple statement about some absurd perspectives on the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Writer-directors Dominic Harari and Teresa Pelegri have penned an amusing script and, as directors, inject a delicate human texture into the story's intermixing of capricious zaniness, frank sensuality and Mideast politics.

The laughs more than make up for the familiarity.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

... well-intentioned and charming, a deliberately downsized film that despite its high concept finds humor in the domestic more often than the political.

A fresh and funny Spanish take on the classic family screwball comedy.

Only Human (Seres Queridos), generally speaking, doesn't work.

While the comedy is at times sharp but mainly chaotic in that frenzied European style, it seems the filmmakers actually intended to make a statement about Jews, Arabs, and the possibility that love can out maneuver politics and overcome unimaginable histo

The only lesson it has to impart is that a gifted, charismatic cast can elevate the most tired material into something closer to mediocrity.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

The secret to Only Human's appeal is that the silliness is performed matter of factly, so it becomes a new, cracked definition of normal.

A smart and dark comedy from Spain, Only Human manages to say cogent things about the nature of intolerance and love while being fitfully hilarious.

Sean Axmaker
Seattle Post-Intelligencer

The irreverent comedy of family feuds, impulsive leaps of (il)logic, and temporary amnesia is more screwball eccentricity than social satire.

There's a political and social clash at its core, but the laughter comes from a deeper, human place (see title).

A familiar situation of a beloved daughter bringing her intended home to meet the folks is pushed to sublimely silly extremes.

Offers passing amusements, for sure, but the gap between its brilliant potential and its final execution is frustrating.

A Spanish comedy that isn't quite as frenzied or farcical as its husband-and-wife writer-director team clearly intended it to be.

Frank Swietek
One Guy's Opinion

Amiable, and occasionally even insightful, but also sometimes just silly and at others a trifle tasteless...a mixed bag that, unhappily, doesn't deliver quite enough.

It lets frantic get so far ahead of funny, the latter gets lost in the dust.

Mines the comic possibilities of the classic setup of introducing the fiancÚ to the family, with results that are playful, charming and surprisingly thoughtful.
