The once considerable Andrew Fleming (Bad Dreams, The Craft, Dick) writes and directs with an eye cast in the direction of a weekly sitcom, not serious character
Ideal Home may not be a total dud, but it is a huge waste of both Rudd and Coogan's talent.
Funnier would have been better, but the warm inclusiveness makes its point.
Ideal Home is too cartoonish to meaningfully celebrate the beauty of the families we choose, and too casual to accomplish much else.

Ideal Home is a pretty average comedy with some laughs thanks to the lead performances, but its messy script, Fleming's self-conscious direction and predictable storytelling bring it down a notch.
Steve Coogan and Paul Rudd star in Ideal Home, a comedy about an upper middle-class couple that feels out of touch, and severely outdated.
Ideal Home is a charming warm-hearted comedy which is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
Significantly more earnest and sentimental than one might expect.
Ideal Home is ultimately a kind of boring and really on the nose movie.
