Critic Reviews for Family Obligations

All Critics (7) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (2)

  • The story and themes the movie explores are familiar, but they are examined with enough nuance and eccentric charm to distinguish the film from others of this ilk.

    March 3, 2020 | Rating: 76/100 | Full Review…
  • Family Obligations could well be the poster movie for indie credibility.

    February 29, 2020 | Rating: 3.0/5 | Full Review…
  • The film's emotional payoffs are more satisfying for being low key and lived in, much like ordinary lives.

    February 21, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Doesn't always overcome its bare-bones budget and technical insufficiencies.

    February 19, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Concentrate more on the movie's personal values, and you might agree that this first-time effort from writer/director Kenneth R. Frank nicely gets it done despite only an apparent eight-day shooting schedule.

    January 29, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • There's promise in Frank's work, even if Family Obligations is full of cliched plotting and crude, borderline incompetent filmmaking.

    January 27, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
