Critic Reviews for Seres queridos

All Critics (53) | Top Critics (23)

Writer-directors Dominic Harari and Teresa Pelegri have penned an amusing script and, as directors, inject a delicate human texture into the story's intermixing of capricious zaniness, frank sensuality and Mideast politics.

A smart and dark comedy from Spain, Only Human manages to say cogent things about the nature of intolerance and love while being fitfully hilarious.

Top Critic

There's a political and social clash at its core, but the laughter comes from a deeper, human place (see title).

Top Critic

A familiar situation of a beloved daughter bringing her intended home to meet the folks is pushed to sublimely silly extremes.

Top Critic

A Spanish comedy that isn't quite as frenzied or farcical as its husband-and-wife writer-director team clearly intended it to be.

Top Critic

It lets frantic get so far ahead of funny, the latter gets lost in the dust.

Audience Reviews for Seres queridos

Definitely an entertaining comedy with solid writing and a great cast. But it's another movie that ends up peaking way too early. It's also another movie that thinks it's more clever than it actually is, and at the same time the characters end up reading like something out of a more adult sitcom. There's no real character progression, with the exception of the mother and the father's relationship and Rafi and Leni's eventual 'discussion' about Jewish and Palestinian issues at the end. And this scene is another thing I have an issue with. It's left until the very end of the movie, so the movie is pretty much a build-up to that moment but when they finally have it, the conversation ends up feeling so forced and contrived that it may have been better if they just left it off. It was a good idea, but it just didn't work in execution. And, again, I liked this movie. It was fun to watch, it had funny moments, though, again, I think the movie tries too hard to be funny. It has a great cast and good enough writing that the movie is still good in spite of all the problems I had with it.

A good portion of this movie was just wacky fun! It is chock full of unusual situations, and funny characters. But then it tends to go overboard on the "crazy and funny" family situations...too the point of stupid, not funny. HOWEVER, the movie as a whole is definitely worth checking out. There are some hysterical situations that I will remember for some time.
