The film looks and sounds great but what really pulls the viewer in are the humor and the performances. Paul Rudd particularly shines by being his usual self but with something more to it than his usual mildly goofy, sometimes aloof performances.

This is a slight film, but it is a low-key delight.

I enjoyed this far more than I thought I would. Very funny and equally frustrating, mostly because of Coogan's character.

Families come in an endless assortment. But it's a safe bet that few of them are as ill-assorted at first as flamboyant TV chef Erasmus, his panic attack-prone partner, Paul, and the pugnacious 10-year-old grandson Erasmus didn't know he had.

Coogan and Rudd get a surprise visitor in Andrew Fleming's gay rom-com, with lightweight results.
May 4, 2019
May not be groundbreaking queer cinema but it's a meaningful and genuinely hilarious movie-going experience that caters to a wide audience despite its colourful mentality.

Like eating an old piece of candy. It tastes sweet but sometimes you can't help feeling its outdatedness.
January 18, 2019
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.
November 1, 2018
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and Paul Rudd star in Ideal Home, a comedy about an upper middle-class couple that feels out of touch, and severely outdated.
October 31, 2018
Ideal Home is a charming warm-hearted comedy which is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
August 27, 2018
Significantly more earnest and sentimental than one might expect.
August 27, 2018
Ideal Home is ultimately a kind of boring and really on the nose movie.
July 16, 2018
Ideal Home offers a twist on the traditional family dramedy that leans slightly more towards the comedy side of things. It's ideal viewing if you're after a breezy, entertaining watch.
July 9, 2018
The breezy romcom approach allows Fleming to touch on several big topics in ways that are never preachy.
July 9, 2018
It's badly out of kilter with the plot of Andrew Fleming's comedy, a low-key piece that could have been played more realistically.
July 9, 2018
It's well acted and laugh-out-loud funny at times but has its longueurs too.
July 8, 2018
Every joke's punchline is that these characters are gay, making it difficult to understand who exactly, in 2018, the film hopes to make laugh.
July 6, 2018
Maybe it's all a meta joke? Or an ironic bad-taste prank? Let's hope so.
July 6, 2018
There are simply no funny lines here.
July 5, 2018
There are some laughs, but Ideal Home feels embarrassingly outdated with its homosexual jokes and assumption that it's a big deal for men to be parents.
