  • It isn't good enough, it isn't smart enough, and, doggone it, most people won't like Stuart Saves His Family.

  • Even if you find Franken hard to bear, as I do, the movie's take on how he functions in the world is both authoritative and compelling, and the movie steadily grows in stature.

  • Those familiar with Alcoholics Anonymous' 12-step recovery programme may bond in sympathy. The sentimentality, however, doesn't play.

    June 24, 2006 | Full Review…
  • The plotting is surprisingly banal, involving even talk of a property easement and turning Stuart into the executor of a relative's estate. And the relatives' problems are taken semi-seriously, which is more than this lightweight film can handle.

    May 20, 2003 | Rating: 2/5
  • It was much funnier when we didn't see Stuart's family. And, if we have to see them, it would have been much funnier if they were strait-laced '50s sitcom types.

Audience Reviews for Stuart Saves His Family

    I liked the Stuart Skit on Saturday Night Live; it's a funny premise of self-help addiction. The movie wasn't too bad, but the characters got a bit annoying.

    I'm not a fantatic of the Stuart character. This film directed by Harold Ramis was hilarious! I enjoyed watching the entire movie.

    Another SNL skit that sucked as a movie!

    Wow . . . who woulda thunk it? Stuart Smalley is a memorable character from Al Franken's SNL days. I'm not sure I actually mean "memorable" in a good way here, but Smalley is not easliy forgotten. The SNL episode with Michael Jordan leaps to mind. <p>Here's an impromptu scale for movies that deal with addiction: Ray Milland in <i>Lost Weekend</i> on the heavy end, Jeff Bridges in <i>Big Lebowski</i> on the light end. Franken manages to deal with the problem of addiction in a way that's tipped to the Milland end: very serious, almost too serious, for what would appear to be a comedy. <p> Vincent D'Onofrio . . . may actually be the best job he's done. I'm no fan. <p> Really, flixster friends, not a bad movie at all. Love the picture in front of the Hollywood sign.
