      Critics Consensus

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

      Roseanne V Fun, light, entertaining little comedy that has a few LMAO moments. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/08/23 Full Review Cork B Family is low key, with some fairly dry, hilarious jokes embedded in the dialogue. I think part of what holds this movie back is the lead character. Not necessarily that the actress did a bad job, quite the opposite. But how such a loner outcast with no time management, planning or social skills, and a drinking problem ever got ahead in corporate America is beyond me. And the juggalo stuff was just dumb, although I can understand why they added it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/15/23 Full Review Alex W A light-hearted, heart-warming quick flick with a message everyone can relate to. Very well acted - Schilling was excellent. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/12/23 Full Review tom m It was okay. I'm not a huge fan of Talylor Schilling (Piper of Orange Is The New Black), but she did an okay job in this. She has a distinctive brand of comedy that works reasonably well. It touches on a bit of culture of which I was heretofore unware, "Juggalos". Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I really loved this movie!! I fell in love with the characters and the fact that they weren't perfect and didn't have it all figured out. This movie had me laughing out loud one minute, to feeling a little sad, and then other times cheesing so hard that my cheeks are now a little sore from smiling!! I would recommend this movie to anyone that actually has a real sense of humor and a good heart!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I love Taylor as an actress! This was a breath of fresh air amongst the stereotypical movies on offer on streaming services. More movies like this please :) Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Nell Minow AWFJ.org An endearing story about characters who are less unlikeable than they fear, and who are able to find a place that feels like home. Oct 14, 2021 Full Review Katie Walsh Los Angeles Times This charming, shaggy story of embracing oneself to authentically connect with others is peppered with appealing performances... Apr 29, 2019 Full Review Adam Graham Detroit News Family successfully milks laughs from its contrived premise, and its game cast help it rise above its conventional roots. Rated: B- Apr 26, 2019 Full Review Marya E. Gates Cool People Have Feelings, Too. (Substack) A genuine hidden gem. Feb 13, 2024 Full Review Paul Kanieski KSQD Community Radio Family, the movie, is a frequently funny and occasionally hilarious look at the importance of family in whatever shapes it takes, whether immediate, extended or virtual. Jul 25, 2023 Full Review Cate Marquis AWFJ.org It all leads to the expected insights, but it does offer silly fun and even some touching moments along the way.
