Movie Info

When a TV producer is desperate to find a replacement series, she convinces a 71 year-old Armenian, tell-it-like-it-is Uncle to star in a new reality show. Cultures collide when Uncle Rafael is thrown into the Schumacher family household where he, in his own Armenian way, has one week to save an already broken and dysfunctional American family from falling apart. The only rule-everyone must follow his rules! -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for My Uncle Rafael

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

"My Uncle Rafael" elicits plenty of goofy chuckles even as it regularly threatens to fly off the rails.

September 20, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's all too simplistic, but there's something about watching this inept, callow, bourgeois family getting slapped, scolded, and generally schooled by their new, platitude-spewing Armenian "uncle" that's perversely entertaining.

September 20, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A hokey story with a needless reality-show overlay.

September 20, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

An insufferable import indebted to Mrs. Doubtfire in which a man in prosthetics helps a family cope with, and overcome, divorce.

September 18, 2012

For anyone who has the bad luck to see this vanity production, it will be remembered as one of the worst films of the year--if not the decade.
