Movie Info

Celebrity chef Erasmus (Steve Coogan) and his partner Paul (Paul Rudd) have a happy and rather self-indulgent life together. Their perfect existence is turned upside down when, at a dinner party, Erasmus is confronted by the grandson he never knew he had. With the child's father in prison it seems he has nowhere else to go and so, after much debate they decide to take him in. With changes and challenges on both sides, this could prove a recipe for disaster. Filled with heart and humor, this new family looks set to serve up one of the most deliciously funny films of the year.

Critic Reviews for Ideal Home

All Critics (7)

Flaws and all, this is a film with a feeling for human complexities, a degree of visual intelligence and its heart in the right place. Considering the current dismal state of big-screen American comedy, that feels like a gift.

Coogan and Rudd are believable as a gay couple... It's the relationship between the two men that taps some emotional depths.

June 22, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Fleming fleshes out his recognisable story with sincere characters, thoughtful details and an intimate approach that makes viewers feel like the fourth member of the movie's growing family.

June 21, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Under the tight, focused and accessible writing and direction of filmmaker Andrew Fleming, Ideal Home resists the temptation to overcomplicate its tale with too much heavy material for a mainstream audience.

June 21, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Likeable if unremarkable adult comedy.

June 20, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Despite its been-there-done-that story, what saves Ideal Home from mediocrity is the irrepressible charm of Paul Rudd and Steve Coogan.
