Movie Reviews

  • 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
    Review rate : B- by Cole Smithey [ ]
  • there are funny moments, and touching ones, too
    2 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News ]
  • the movie teeters on the edge of caricature, but Turner keeps it grounded and relatable
    3 of 4 by Robert Levin [amNewYork ]
  • the film jumps all over the place, leaping from comedy to tragedy to hug-dispensing sentimentality
    by Ronnie Scheib [Variety ]
  • so heavily it can seem like a fable about religious decrees versus acceptance
    Review rate : C by Alison Willmore [AV Club ]
  • oscillates between Lifetime-channel melodrama, lazy barbs and facile irony
    by Ernest Hardy [Village Voice ]
  • it all feels very dull and anachronistically naive
    1 of 4 by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine ]
  • has the loud, mechanical clicketyclack of a 40-year-old episode of "All in the Family."
    2 of 5 by Stephen Holden [New York Times ]
  • full of broad comedy moments with plucked plucky strings on the soundtrack
    3.5 of 5 by James Rocchi [MSN Movies ]
  • feels like it could have been more than that, but I suppose counting its blessings is the more Christian thing to do
    3 of 5 by Michelle Orange [Movieline ]
  • everything is too neatly black and white, when real life rarely is
    2 of 5 by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
  • despite the genuine humor that pops up in unexpected corners of almost every scene, this movie has a lot to say about misplaced faith
    by Rex Reed [New York Observer ]
