October 23, 2017
Baumbach's ripest and wisest film to date, alert to the fact that so little in life, especially a screwy or a super-ambitious life, is open to resolution.
October 20, 2017
[Meyerowitz] is alternately wide-ranging and self-indulgent.
October 17, 2017
If you enjoy Baumbach's work, you know what you're getting into-but even by his impressive yardstick, The Meyerowitz Stories is an achievement.
October 14, 2017
Baumbach sketches out the intra-family conflicts with aptitude, making sure there's enough lightness to avoid a spiral into the kind of grim and humorless affair the French are fond of, but there's an element of familiarity to the overall narrative arc.

We enjoy the Meyerowitz clan, even as we praise the heavens we're not like them and we don't live next door to any of 'em.
October 13, 2017
It might call to mind Woody Allen or J.D. Salinger along the way, but in the end, this is pure Baumbach, from its compassionate analysis of broken families to its empathetic insistence that even the most broken can still find redemption.
October 13, 2017
A clever, thoughtful, elegantly wistful examination of the organic family's resilience.
October 13, 2017
One of the year's best movies.
October 13, 2017
The comedy is clever; the study of family dynamics is sharper still.
October 13, 2017
A rich drama about parental ties, parental scars and getting on with life.
October 13, 2017
Smart, relatable, laughter-through-psychic pain entertainment that happens to be elevated by a handful of wonderful performances ...

All of the film's stars shine, it's beautifully shot, it's in turns hilarious and touching and the literary conceit pays off.
October 12, 2017
By turns gorgeously toxic and deliciously feral, the sheer intensity of emotional aggression in this, Noah Baumbach's best feature to date, can be almost overwhelming.

October 12, 2017
The story is familiar, but much like real-life minor artists, the subtle differences are what make it special. Chief among them are the inspired performances.
October 12, 2017
More than most of Baumbach's creations, the Meyerowitzes are just too tedious for words.
October 12, 2017
Noah Baumbach makes family movies that feel lived in - the kind that banter, bristle and sometimes bleed. Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller and a never-better Adam Sandler help make this dramedy one of the unalloyed pleasures of the fall movie season.
October 12, 2017
All the performances are terrific, even when some of the scenes sputter or reiterate the grievances.
October 12, 2017
The film's emotional undercurrent is both tender and insistent. We are as our fathers sculpted us, says "The Meyerowitz Stories," and we spend a lifetime learning to move and breathe on our own.
October 12, 2017
Sandler lends Danny an open-heartedness that grounds the film.
October 11, 2017
"Meyerowitz" is graced with Baumbach's acute observations of human behavior.
