A devoutly Catholic wife and mother (Turner), who has been nominated for one of the church's top awards. She goes about trying to prove she has the "perfect" family, refusing to accept them for who they are.

Meanwhile, the son (Ritter) has just left his wife for an older woman, while the husband (McGrady) is a recovering alcholic. Chamberlain plays the monsignor.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film jumps all over the place, leaping from comedy to tragedy to hug-dispensing sentimentality..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]
“..there are funny moments, and touching ones, too..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..without putting too fine a point on the Catholic Church's arch stance toward gays, "The Perfect Family" makes a clear and welcome humanitarian statement..”
