Stilted acting, predictable scenes

I'll say up front I only made it 1/3 of the way through the movie and had to stop, not entertained. When I read the fun fact that Mark Ruffalo shot all his scenes in 6 days I knew this was likely a movie rushed out by actors, good and bad, that wanted a paycheck for the week. So many awkward scenes, Annette B's scenes always displeased and condescending, an America's Next Top Model contestant trying to act (and when you're worried the audience will know you can't, then you do a sex scene hoping it leads to future work). There's a scene where the kids get to meet the sperm donor at an amazing restaurant and one kid just shrugs, says "yeah, it's okay." He's wanted to meet his "dad" his whole life and when he does and is directly asked if he wants to know something, ask any questions he replies, (duh) "No, I didn't have anything to ask." Really?!? If these miserable people with their rubbish lives are considered a "modern day family", I worry for future generations. I can only hope the rest of the movie improves greatly for viewers but I won't be wasting my time to find out. Enjoy.

Did not like the ugly relationship stuff. Sure, it probably works out in the end, but I don't like watching movies where deception and bickering are the central features. Cut it short to save my soul.

A Hard Movie - a call to be better
Verified purchase
Highly imperfect, but likable characters, who love each other very much, at a difficult time in their lives, but end up hurting each other very much. Life. Sadly this is life for so many. This movie is a true portrait, ugly and true. No judgements, no recommendations, no ethical verdicts, no conclusions, just what is. I thought it was very well done, in this respect. At the end of it, all I have concluded is that this is a movie that makes us, as the main female lead says near the end, to MR's character, "I wanted you to be better". I think that's all we can do with a movie like this. It's difficult to "like" it. It's not a fantasy like Lord of the Rings. We can't admire and model ourselves after the characters like Gandalf or Aragorn. We can feel sad and want to honor their characters by being better.

Turned out to be rather predictable

The Kids Are All Right is a new kind of story about family and raising kids. It features Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutcherson living with their two mothers Julianne Moore and Annette Bening. The kids reach out to their sperm donor dad Mark Ruffalo creating an awkward extended family on top of issues some of the characters are already facing. The kids are going through usual teen rebelliousness while the two mothers are having problems with their relationship. I thought it was okay but nothing that hadn’t been dealt with before. I understand the acclaim it got for dealing with a gay couple with kids but that didn’t mean two moms dealing with teens that didn’t want to talk to them was somehow going to be amazingly different. Bening’s character was also completely overbearing which made her my least favorite character. On top of that they threw in a plot twist to cause a dilemma which was very predictable.

EXCELLENT!!!!!

I know many religious zealots are going to poo poo this fine film because of the subject matter but I think it is a revolutionary gem. This movie reflects life, pure and on point with love, truth and a lot of heart.

Definitely not family friendly
Verified purchase
as too many in your face explicit sex scenes and innuendos and definitely not a comedy. Didn't watch the preview and didn't know what I was getting myself into, never would have chosen to watch this type of film but stuck with it hoping it would get better. Only positive was the message that having two mothers can be confusing and stressful for the kids, at least as shown in this film.

Woof!

We expected a good story with actors we knew & liked. Badly disappointed. Rather weak storyline, full of cliches, and DEFINITELY not a comedy. The ending basically fell onto the floor—we looked at each other and said, “Is that all?”

Whose mother talks and acts like this?

I was disgusted by the two main female characters in this movie. They dropped the f-bomb in front of their teenage children every chance they got. And their behavior was deplorable. Amazon will not allow me to leave a review about how I really feel, but don't say you haven't been warned.
