Reuniting The Rubins (2012)
Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.
Lenny Rubins, an up-tight lawyer, puts his dream retirement on hold when his ailing mother emotionally blackmails him into reuniting his estranged children for a Jewish holiday. They may be peas from the same pod, but in Lenny's eyes, his grown up children are certainly not from the same planet: a control-freak hard-nosed capitalist, an outspoken argumentative eco-warrior committed to the cause, an outer worldly Buddhist Monk; and to cap it all a bible bashing born-again Rabbi! They might not see eye to eye, but they are still family and it is going to take a whole lot of soul searching and sacrifice for all involved to come together in this heart warming, comic, family drama that will have you thinking of your own family with a smile. -- (C) Official Site … More

Critic Reviews for Reuniting The Rubins
"Reuniting the Rubins" may walk like a comedy and quack like a comedy, but despite the absurd extremes to which it takes the squabbling-family formula, it inspires nary a chuckle.
A frantic, badly constructed, slightly offensive muddle that doesn't so much end as run out of things on a checklist.
The script includes little back story and lots of button-pushing shorthand, none of which feels genuine...
What happens when you put a rabbi, a Buddhist monk, a high-strung capitalist, and a lesbian humanitarian together in the same room? Not comedy, it turns out.
Audience Reviews for Reuniting The Rubins
"A movie full of odd-ball characters who happen to be apart of a dysfunctional family. My favorite kind of families. But this one wasn't as out there or nearly as dramatic for my taste. I like these types of films to be more darker. But it was OK. Entertaining. I thought most of the acting was good. Some a little bit over the top. But the interesting part was how different Lenny's children turned out. One a budah, another a Rabbi, one a complete ass, and the other off changing the world. It was an odd mixture, but an interesting one none the less. Not something I would watch again, but nothing I regret seeing either."
