  • It would be ripe territory for self-reflection if this sloppy debut from filmmaker Anne Renton weren't plagued with as much self-doubt and uncertainty as its lead Catholic.

    May 17, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • At the most fundamental level, as a work of entertainment, it fails. Scenes meander pointlessly, beginning and ending without any change or story movement.

  • A moving story of a woman's attempt to keep pace in a world that's moving too quickly for her.

    May 10, 2012 | Rating: 3/4
  • A leaden, ham-fisted affair that was exactly the sort of pap John Waters was spoofing when he cast Turner as a serial-killing soccer mom.

    May 10, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The film's gentle, sentimental approach prevents it from ever really getting at the pain that's been swirling around this imperfect family for years.

    May 4, 2012 | Rating: 4.5/10 | Full Review…
  • "The Perfect Family'' is Kathleen Turner's show. And when a series of crises forces Eileen to re-examine her values and beliefs, Turner rises magnificently to the occasion.

    I actually liked this a little more than I thought I would. I can't help feel that it would have been a better movie without Kathleen Turner, though....

    The film is rather diffuse but Kathleen Turner is masterful in her ability to convey this woman's many sides and internal struggle. It's a shame the film that surrounds her isn't more tightly written.

    "<i><b>The Perfect Family</i></b> is like so many other family films that I have seen dealing with religion, having a gay/lesbian child and of course the one screw up. I thought that maybe I would see some originality with this film, but not so much. The story has been done. This one is a bit different except it has the same conclusion as the one's that have come before it. The mother is stricken with guilt over the sins she has commited in her past and present. She is in constant denial about the choices her family has made about their own lives and continues to live in this bliss until it all comes crumbling down around her. The acting was semi good. Nothing to write the award shows about. So in the end it was just OK for me."
