I want to high five the person who cast Benning and Moore as a couple. They're scenes are the most delicious parts of the film.

We're shown real life problems in a fictional story that gives us real life solutions. Bravo Lisa, your film is more than all right.

Bening hoists this heavy-handed dramedy high with a burst of superhuman strength. And all you can do is sit in awe.

August 15, 2011
A twist on the traditional family drama, where every character has depth and deserves redemption.

February 27, 2011
The dialog seems like it was pulled from a magazine full of bad liberal clichés. It feels as if people who used to be progressives, but want people to think they still are wrote this movie.

This is very tricky material to parse, mainly because the movie is telling us one thing in dialogue and showing us quite another visually.
February 1, 2011
What it lacks in grandstanding and pandering to the 'issues', this film more than makes up for with its great story, rounded characters and genuine sense of fun.

The Kids Are All Right is witty, touching and humane - and decidedly up to the minute.
January 31, 2011
Its emotional pull remains consistent to the end.

January 18, 2011
More of a breezy drama, as opposed to a weighty comedy... the ace up its sleeve, aside from its "modern family" plot device, is its characters, brought to life with welcome layers and depth by the cast.

How, despite such a talented, femme-centric cast, does Ruffalo's loveable idiot manage to walk off with the film?

Regardless of the orientations, 'The Kids Are All Right' is an all-American film.

The Kids Are All Right would have been a highly regarded, stinging family drama in the tradition of American Beauty and Ordinary People even if the subject family was not so proudly unorthodox.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
December 19, 2010
A bittersweet family dramedy that challenges the perceptions of the perfect family...
December 10, 2010
The combined troupe do a good enough job to make the movie get by, but not enough to mask the huge gears running the story, nor the accidental and ironic anti-progressiveness the movie has the potential to convey.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
November 26, 2010
A long-form sitcom overly pleased with its own progressiveness.

...All the pieces are in place--I just wish Cholodenko had been a little more precious about the execution.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 24, 2010
Without any humor in the story, this would be a very sad story about a destructive mix of personalities causing havoc in a family. But the film does have a lot of humor in it.

Una sensible comedia dramática sobre la falta de certezas (o la eterna búsqueda de ellas) que implica formar una familia, más allá de definiciones y preferencias sexuales. Excelente elenco en el que brilla especialmente Annette Bening.
