if it wasn't for the distractingly wall-to-wall indie soundtrack... and mildly cop-out ending, I'd be pushing this straight to the top end of our Best of 2010 list.

The Kids Are All Right is warmly recommended to anyone in search of smart, grown-up entertainment.

November 6, 2010
A sleek, smart, enormously entertaining film, (....) it has the feel of a classic Hollywood comedy at its snappiest.
November 3, 2010
A light, lovingly handled tale about the difficulties of staying in love.

The film joyfully allows us to embrace, rather than escape, the wonderful, awkward embarrassment of familial love.
November 1, 2010
The film taps into the neuroses of middle-class America without exploiting its premise for egregious quirk value or for dry, tub-thumping agenda-setting.

Only those without a funnybone will fail to be seduced by its sheer verve, wit and charm.

David Sexton
London Evening Standard
October 29, 2010
This is a much better made, more persuasive film than The Switch or The Back-Up Plan but just as much about wish fulfilment, and no more honest about conflicts that can leave the kids far from all right.
Anthony Quinn
Independent (UK)

Piercingly funny, subtle and moving.

Funny, aching, rueful -- often at the same time -- The Kids Are All Right makes most mainstream releases this year seem decadent by comparison.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

The Sun (UK)
October 28, 2010
An intelligent, well observed movie about adult relationships. The kids are alright but this is a film for grown ups.
Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail (UK)

Films about the stresses and strains of marriage don't come any better -- or more entertaining -- than this.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

Family-centric comedy has never felt so fresh.

Peter Bradshaw
October 28, 2010
A witty portrait of postmodern family life in which script, casting, direction and location all just float together without any apparent effort at all.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
Damon Wise

Best of all is Bening, capping even her performance in American Beauty, as a woman forced to face her partner's betrayal.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
Chris Prince
Sky Movies
October 28, 2010
Smart, funny, slyly satirical and wonderfully warm, this deft 'dramedy' is bitter-sweet film-making at its best.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
Anna Smith
Empire Magazine
October 27, 2010
A witty, warm exploration of family life that's conventional and unconventional in equal measure.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
Roz Laws

October 27, 2010
There are good performances and a smart and occasionally funny script, plus some good observations about relationships, but you do wonder what the point is to it all.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

So much tension doesn't quite translate into a gutsy finale, still, this film is never less than heartfelt.
