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.

  • Family successfully milks laughs from its contrived premise, and its game cast help it rise above its conventional roots.

  • "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…
