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.
