Who the hell names their son Claude? Do they want him to get beat up every day of his life?

Noah Baumbach’s entry into the dysfunctional-family sweepstakes is a successfully depressing affair that has some genuine laughs to maintain interest while the fake relationships that dominate every scene leave the viewer as estranged as the char

The raw, real centerpiece is the relationship between Kidman and Leigh, whose performances drive the film.

Noah Baumbach is the king of dysfunction. We constantly see films about war, love, aliens, so why no films about how insanely uncomfortable family can be with one another?

Doesn't quite measure up to its predecessor but it is still an often painfully accurate study of fractured family relationships.

Magnetic, subtly tragic and ultimatley sympathetic, worth a watch if only to remind yourself why you don't go home for Christmas anymore.

February 28, 2008
Emotional car-crash cinema at its best, packed with characters you'd hate to meet but who are riveting to watch. Baumbach's barbed cynicism won't be to everyone's taste, but those still suffering the aftermath of a family Christmas will grin in grim recog

Baumbach's interest in families - a distinct Baumbachian sort of family - is acute and his observations often painful and delivered with a dry wit.

Enjoyably spiky family drama with a sharply written script and strong performances from its two leads.

In this day and age, its stripped down incisiveness is nearly unfathomable.

Like Margot herself, the film is contrived and self-conscious and perhaps not entirely aware of its alienating effect; yet beneath the clever surface squirms something damaged and real.

f you can imagine Woody Allen and Neil LaBute collaborating on a screenplay - and imagine enjoying the resultant film - then Margot might be for you.

... written with enough wit and performed with enough skill that I found it impossible to turn away from the Zellers and their collective emotional train wreck.
