Ideal Home (2018)



Critic Consensus: Ideal Home benefits from the chemistry between a well-chosen cast, whose work helps tip the scales against the script's inconsistent -- and occasionally retrograde -- humor.

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.

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.

June 29, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Ideal Home is too cartoonish to meaningfully celebrate the beauty of the families we choose, and too casual to accomplish much else.

June 28, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…

"Ideal Home" is genuinely funny, and the poignant and pithy script is aided by the chemistry between its stars, who are equally adept with comedic punch lines as they are with dramatic gut punches.

Coogan and Rudd display real chemistry, bouncing barbs off each other with an undercurrent of affection, and Gore is cute but never nauseatingly so.
