Critic Reviews for First Family
Unfunny farce about an inept president, his alcoholic wife and their motley family and aides.
[First Family] has sequences that are side-splittingly funny, others that are sublimely cheerful and still others that, like the movie itself, simply don't know how to end.
Disappointing acerbic political satire directed and written by Buck Henry.
Buck Henry directed his own screenplay, which disintegrates about halfway through the film.
Filled with illogical situations and juvenile humor, First Family will have trouble getting anybody's vote.
Audience Reviews for First Family
Should have been great, with Buck Henry and the amazing cast. But it wasn't... (although the last 10 minutes were amazing, how strange is that?)
Insultingly stupid comedy and a very sad waste of a talented comedic cast. Gilda Radner is particularly bad, Bob Newhart's brand of humor doesn't work in this one and Madeline Kahn deserves much better material than this.
