Critic Reviews for You Can Choose Your Family

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

Bailey and Lakin give [Gaffigan] next to nothing to work with, and the result flops where it should crackle.

Jim Gaffigan and Logan Miller have incredible chemistry together and give spectacularly heartfelt and honest performances.

Mar 20, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Despite good performances, the film doesn't reach its potential. Given current sexual politics, you'd hope to see a stronger condemnation of the privileged attitude exuded by Gaffigan's character.

You Can Choose Your Family is an absolute emotional joy that will have you crying one moment and laughing the next.

Mar 15, 2018 | Rating: A | Full Review…

With its mix of comedy and drama, You Can Choose Your Family delivers the goods in filmmaker Miranda Bailey's narrative feature directorial debut.

Mar 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Frank betrays everyone he professes to love, which includes two wives and four children. He's horrible. It should be easy to hate him, but Gaffigan and Miller's onscreen chemistry and writer Glen Lakin's hilarious dialogue complicate it all a bit.
