"Reuniting the Rubins" may walk like a comedy and quack like a comedy, but despite the absurd extremes to which it takes the squabbling-family formula, it inspires nary a chuckle.
Theoretical laughter, tears and maudlin contrivance ensue.
A frantic, badly constructed, slightly offensive muddle that doesn't so much end as run out of things on a checklist.
The script includes little back story and lots of button-pushing shorthand, none of which feels genuine...
What happens when you put a rabbi, a Buddhist monk, a high-strung capitalist, and a lesbian humanitarian together in the same room? Not comedy, it turns out.
Yoav Factor can't decide whether he wants to play his broad scenario as an exaggerated farce or as a heartwarming testament to blood ties.
Reuniting the Rubins is harmless, unspectacular comedy, let down by a poor script and light-weight direction, which might have been more at home on a Sunday on ITV. It isn't the worst thing you'll see this year, but it will be difficult to remember.
An ensemble piece wobbling between undercooked drama and low-powered farce...
A mediocre sitcom with too many preachy subplots.
Most people would rather spend five years in a Hamas dungeon than endure their company.
There are some films so bad, they don't warrant a review. This is one of them.
Give me an oy. Give me a vey.
"A movie full of odd-ball characters who happen to be apart of a dysfunctional family. My favorite kind of families. But this one wasn't as out there or nearly as dramatic for my taste. I like these types of films to be more darker. But it was OK. Entertaining. I thought most of the acting was good. Some a little bit over the top. But the interesting part was how different Lenny's children turned out. One a budah, another a Rabbi, one a complete ass, and the other off changing the world. It was an odd mixture, but an interesting one none the less. Not something I would watch again, but nothing I regret seeing either."
