The Family Stone Reviews

    Sarah Jessica Parker saves this from mediocrity. Not even Dermot Mulroney and Luke Wilson's performances can dent this five star and that really is saying something.

    If you like the TV show "Modern Family", then you will like this movie. Great acting, along with a great script, makes a perfect night with your love one. On the couch, under the blanket, eating popcorn out of a bowl.

    The Family Stone is a very underrated and touching holiday film that I have grown to love. The performances are all so natural and you really feel like you're close to the Stone family at Christmas time. Every conversation seems to have meaning and you genuinely care about each one of them. It tells us that it can be a challenge to be around family during the holidays, but seeing the good in everyone and everything can make a difference. It can be predictable at times, but you just feel satisfied by the time the credits roll. (4/5)

    My favorite Christmas movie. One crazy family comes together for the holidays and is joined by an uptight girlfriend. Hilarity ensures. Luke Wilson is as funny here as he's ever been.

    Amazing cast, but lackluster writing and aggressive camera shots made for a very disappointing experience.

    Nothing says Christmas like sobbing and or yelling every five minutes, sporadic infidelity, terminal cancer, and a rude bunch of assholes being assholes to each other simply because they're assholes. Even with consistent performances all around, The Family Stone is one of the most tonally nauseating films I have ever seen.
