Critics Consensus

3 Generations squanders a worthy premise on a thinly written story that focuses on dramatic signposts at the expense of genuine character development.

All Critics (44) | Top Critics (20) | Fresh (14) | Rotten (30)

  • "3 Generations" starts with a unique and intimate point of view, only to become yet another indie drama about the difficulties of motherhood.

    May 11, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • "3 Generations" feels focus-grouped into existence, like its every development was fine-tuned to be as inoffensively on-message as possible in its treatment of trans issues.

    May 11, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • 3 Generations is contrived, but the heartfelt performances keep the threadbare material on track-witty, warm and wise.

    May 11, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • This is a movie that derives most of its suspense on whether a piece of paper will be signed, not a strong basis for dramatic tension.

    May 10, 2017 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • 3 Generations is well-intended and heart-warming, but a mess, and problematic besides.

    May 9, 2017 | Full Review…
  • If you can look past the sitcom humor, that late-in-the-game melodrama and the usual cliche about the mature child in a family of immature adults, "3 Generations" does a few important things.
