Family

Critics Consensus

The definitive juggalo-infused self-discovery comedy, Family transcends its overly familiar elements with fresh twists and Taylor Schilling's appealing performance.

  • This charming, shaggy story of embracing oneself to authentically connect with others is peppered with appealing performances...

    April 29, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Family successfully milks laughs from its contrived premise, and its game cast help it rise above its conventional roots.

    April 26, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • "Family" is rarely laugh-out-loud funny...but it has a good-natured charm, the underutilized presence of Brian Tyree Henry as a martial-arts instructor, and [Taylor] Schilling to make it more memorable than it has a right to be.

    April 26, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Props to Steinel, Schilling and company for putting such a fresh twist on a familiar tale.

    April 25, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Steiner's dull comedy lacks the crucial feelings that could have made the suburban aunt-niece tale at its center more memorable.

    April 19, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • "Family," Laura Steinel's lightweight first feature, relies on audiences buying into the old chestnut that difficult women would be happier (or just easier to be around) if forced to care for a child.
