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

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.

Props to Steinel, Schilling and company for putting such a fresh twist on a familiar tale.

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.

A sunny and likable small-scale comedy about a bad role model and a hopeless kid.
