Critic Reviews for The Kids Are All Right
Sophisticated and funny, but once you get past the unusual premise and the fact that the main couple is realistically portrayed, there's nothing surprising about it.
Definitions of family, love and friendship all get put to the test with wit and warmth in The Kids Are All Right, one of the year's most honest and endearing films.
Here are five gifted actors at the top of their games as five characters in search of what makes a family.
Audience Reviews for The Kids Are All Right
I don't know why this film is labeled a comedy since it has nothing to laugh about. In fact, it is a pathetic little drama that wants to make you feel liberal accepting a family of lesbians, but the characters are poorly developed, the conflicts are artificial and clichéd, and the story lacks dramatic drive.
Annette Bening gives a stunning performance, but it's also a mix of situations and a high level of authenticity and tension that allow for The Kids Are All Right to shine. It is an enjoyable, and ultimately, heartwarming watch.
TKAAR is sort of the most perfect dramedy I've seen on the subject of marriage and family values. The cast of "modern characters" are all incredibly colorful in their own right but through their interactions with each other become truly authentic. Their rounded/layered characterizations is what really makes the film shine, transcending the politically provoking/gimmicky premise. It's a great story, that manages to map the sophisticated issues and struggles of each character gracefully without feeling staged whilst delivering a satisfying ending that isn't obnoxiously hollywood. Also I'd like to add, the film is outright hilarious! Which balances very well with the heavy drama explored through and through.
