I'm not sure there are many recent releases that understand and explore the family dynamic better than "Kids." That alone makes the film worth a look.

Filmmaker Lisa Cholodenko gives so much depth and realism to this modern-day-family dramedy, you can feel the love pouring out of her for each one of these unconventionally authentic characters.

November 5, 2018
An all too rare example of a funny, heart warming and insightful adult American comedy.

The Kids Are All Right is the height of self-congratulatory, agenda-driven filmmaking. As such, you can expect to hear from it come Oscar time.

It is Bening who sears as a likeable jumble of contradictions... It's a masterclass - and reason enough to buy your ticket.

A fantastic film, exuding charm, wit, love, insecurity and anguish.

A certain smugness creeps into the corners of The Kids Are All Right. Morality doesn't have to mean Puritanism, but there is something of that here.
October 7, 2016
A great story for our time.

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.

February 23, 2011
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.

Its emotional pull remains consistent to the end.

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.
