    "All right" doesn't begin to describe it. The Kids Are All Right is wonderful. Here is a film that respects and enjoys all of its characters, the give-and-take and recklessness and wisdom of any functioning family unit, conventional or un-.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Like her (Cholodenko) other movies, this one has vivid characters and strong performances and flows like a slice of life set in an appealing, interesting world. But this one also has a good story and, if you're paying attention, a distinct point of view.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Movies like The Kids Are All Right -- beautifully written, impeccably played, funny and randy and true -- don't come along very often.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    The Kids Are All Right probably could have used a few more scenes to come to an even more satisfying conclusion. But it's a terrific film anyway.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Every scene has its highlights, from amusing observations about sex to poignant truths about parenting and partnerships. But what you'll remember most is the exquisitely lovely final scene, in which Cholodenko reminds us that all we need is a single moment of perfection -in a family, or even in a film - to believe that somehow, things will always be all right.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    This warm, funny, sexy, smart movie erases the boundaries between specialized ''gay content'' and universal ''family content'' with such sneaky authority.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The self-satire of The Kids Are All Right is so knowing, so rich, so hilarious, so damn healthy that it blows all thoughts of degeneracy out of your head.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Witty, urbane and thoroughly entertaining.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    It is outrageously funny without ever exaggerating for comic effect, and heartbreaking with only minimal melodramatic embellishment.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    The movie we've been waiting for all year: a comedy that doesn't take cheap shots, a drama that doesn't manipulate, a movie of ideas that doesn't preach. It's a rich, layered, juicy film, with quiet revelations punctuated by big laughs.

    Slate Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    A thrillingly funny and casually profound film.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Though The Kids Are All Right sometimes smacks of political correctness, Cholodenko succeeds brilliantly in making her little clan seem completely run-of-the-mill.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    More universal than it is alternative, except in one sense: There's nothing else on the contemporary movie landscape like it.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Cholodenko's casually observant style perfectly matches the cast's thoughtful work, though the film ultimately proves more successful at creating messy situations than trying to resolve them.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    It's a classic Hollywood domestic comedy with a mischievous twist.

  • Andrew O'Hehir

    The Kids Are All Right ranks with the most compelling portraits of an American marriage, regardless of sexuality, in film history. Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    The Kids are All Right, a grin-cracking great portrait of a modern American family in minor and then major crises.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The actors are to die for. Bening and Moore nail every nuance of a relationship going adrift. And Ruffalo is dynamite as a man keeping himself at a distance. Kids makes its own special magic. It's irresistible

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Moore and Bening are superb actors here, evoking a marriage of more than 20 years, and all of its shadings and secrets, idealism and compromise.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Here are five gifted actors at the top of their games as five characters in search of what makes a family.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    This gem features five topnotch, multidimensional performances in one of this summer's most engaging films.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Cholodenko, whose previous features include the pretentious "High Art" and the sudsy "Laurel Canyon," pitches The Kids Are All Right at right level - there's enough light comedy to leaven the melodrama and keep it from becoming overbearing.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    That humor is a the delicious underpinning to whatever melodrama happens as these five connect and clash. And that humor is what reassures us, even at its darkest moments, that no matter how things work out for the adults, these kids are going to be all right.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Positioned somewhere between sitcom and piercing human drama, The Kids Are All Right, is both overtly familiar and cutting edge.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Anna Smith

    A witty, warm exploration of family life that's conventional and unconventional in equal measure.

    Empire Full Review
  • Kerry Lengel

    Mark Ruffalo, in just the right amount of stubble, grease and leather, plays Paul, about as cool an instant dad as a SoCal kid named Laser could hope for.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Ruefully funny, beautifully acted comedy of manners.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Arrives as the perfect midsummer movie, a comedy about a flawed-but-functional family that, like "Toy Story 3," captures the drama of growth and separation in all its exhilaration and heartache.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    I spent The Kids are All Right wondering whether director Lisa Cholodenko was affectionate toward her self-absorbed characters or gently mocking them. In the end, I thought she was both and liked the film more.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    A thoroughly and unmistakably modern film so rooted in the now that it's bound to be remembered as a cinematic landmark.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    Some people might blindly and inaccurately accuse this movie of attacking family values, but it has exactly the opposite effect. Touching and funny in their upheaval, the people in The Kids Are All Right open the door to a brand new examination of family values that leaves you charged and cheering.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    What makes Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right remarkable also makes it a tad humdrum, which may be the filmmaker's point.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Justin Lowe

    This love letter to gay-marriage supporters is respectably entertaining filmmaking, it's just not exceptional.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    Serious comedy, powered by an enthusiastic cast and full of good-natured innuendo, Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right gives adolescent coming-of-age and the battle of the sexes a unique twist.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Rob Nelson

    Sparked by wonderfully lived-in performances from Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo, The Kids Are All Right is alright, if not up to the level of writer-director Lisa Cholodenko's earlier pair of new bohemian dramas, "High Art" and "Laurel Canyon."

    Variety Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Never quite shakes its sitcom-ish setup. The director alternates incident-laden storytelling with penetrating character moments that her terrific cast acts to the fullest.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Ray Greene

    The soul of the movie is Mia Wasikowska, a radiant young actress who captures with quiet precision the quandary of a bookish "good girl" suddenly roused to wider personal and experiential possibilities, and to their potential cost.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    Cholodenko casts much better than she writes. Yet, alas, even a talented veteran like Moore can't sell a hoary line like, "Sometimes you hurt the ones you love the most." Maybe if she'd set it to music – nope, sorry, that's already been done.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    There are not only glancing moments but whole sequences in this movie when the agony of social embarrassment makes you want to haul the characters to their feet and slap them in the chops.
