Family (2019)



Critic Consensus: The definitive juggalo-infused self-discovery comedy, Family transcends its overly familiar elements with fresh twists and Taylor Schilling's appealing performance.

An endearing story about characters who are less unlikeable than they fear, and who are able to find a place that feels like home.

This charming, shaggy story of embracing oneself to authentically connect with others is peppered with appealing performances...

Family successfully milks laughs from its contrived premise, and its game cast help it rise above its conventional roots.

April 26, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

"Family" is rarely laugh-out-loud funny...but it has a good-natured charm, the underutilized presence of Brian Tyree Henry as a martial-arts instructor, and [Taylor] Schilling to make it more memorable than it has a right to be.

Props to Steinel, Schilling and company for putting such a fresh twist on a familiar tale.

April 25, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Family succeeds, for the most part, because of and not despite the sheer familiarity of its hoary storyline.
