I laughed real, deep, unable to stop myself laughs. This sweet script is funny, fresh and moving. But... it's set in the oddly dark world of Juggalos which it made it struggle with marketing.

It's a brisk watch that packs in jokes. The cast is supremely talented and delivers at every turn. Most of all, Family is a movie that celebrates what makes us all different and the best of us.

A comedy about a workaholic loner who discovers that she and her niece are not really losers.
May 1, 2019
A sunny and likable small-scale comedy about a bad role model and a hopeless kid.

Family is less a film than a cinematic recycling center.
April 30, 2019
A predictable bit of fluff played in an affected style that's more irritating than enticing.
April 30, 2019
It's a great flip on the usual script by ensuring this ugly duckling's lesson won't be empowerment through conformity.
April 30, 2019
Schilling navigates Steinel's perceptive, funny script with conviction and vulnerability.
April 29, 2019
This charming, shaggy story of embracing oneself to authentically connect with others is peppered with appealing performances...
April 29, 2019
An interesting comedy that ends up being a harsh tragedy, with [a] lesson and all that. [Full review in Spanish]
April 27, 2019
Normally, I hate movies punishing women who've achieved success, but "Family" -- or more importantly, Schilling -- renders it a tad-bit palpable.
April 27, 2019
What makes Family so entertaining is the instant chemistry generated by (Taylor) Schilling and (Bryn) Vale...
April 27, 2019
Schilling's Kate emerges more realistically as profoundly insensitive.
April 26, 2019
Family successfully milks laughs from its contrived premise, and its game cast help it rise above its conventional roots.
April 26, 2019
[Taylor] Schilling's turn as a hellcat in a pantsuit is amusing albeit trite.
April 26, 2019
All of this would make for a clichéd exercise in rehashing well-worn movie plots, if not for the juggalos.
April 26, 2019
These performances are all good and amusing, but they never quite keep you from having the sense that Family is less a movie and more like an extended sitcom pilot that did not get picked up for any number of very good reasons.
April 26, 2019
Nothing really comes together, nothing really works in the dysfunctional Family.
April 26, 2019
Laura Steinel's directorial debut has its moments, but there just aren't enough of them.
April 26, 2019
Family remains consistently funny, because the comedy is grounded in its characters.
