      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The Adults finds enough profundity in grief and strained sibling bonds to overcome an occasionally aimless story, with subtly rewarding results.

      eric g Was kind of Dark and interesting Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/24/23 Full Review Ian Pierre G Boring and slow... the arguments using little voices are terrible to watch. Not worth the time. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/26/24 Full Review Memphis M Honestly, I started watching this movie on a plane and regret I wasted 30 minutes trying to get into it. So slow, so boring, such sad lives (but not even sad enough to cry over) I can't imagine it redeemed itself later. I rarely give up on a movie I've spent that much time watching. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/01/24 Full Review Jason P This could have been a decent movie. Michael Cera mailed this one in. Couldn't even bother to learn the lines of songs. Tsk tsk Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/24 Full Review jim i Good-hearted; maybe a but quirky. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/29/24 Full Review Audience Member This movie didn’t know what it wanted to be and therefore ended up being nothing. You can add all the sentimental music you want but you actually need a script and plot. Other than a couple of sweet moments at the very end, this movie was pretty useless.

      Thelma Adams AARP Movies for Grownups While The Adults lurches from amusing to cringeworthy in tone, it successfully zeroes in on the raw emotions that both bind and separate this quirky trio that can’t seem to harmonize again. Rated: 4/5 Aug 22, 2023 Full Review Kyle Smith Wall Street Journal A sad but affecting character study that has nothing like a plot but instead ruminates on loss, distrust and misunderstanding within a fraying family. Aug 19, 2023 Full Review Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times Michael Cera delivers subtle greatness as an eccentric man visiting his sisters after years away. Rated: 3/4 Aug 18, 2023 Full Review Alex Heeney Seventh Row The Adults was one of the best surprises of 2023: an indie-spirited film somehow sponsored by a studio, with three of the best performances of the year. Mar 22, 2024 Full Review Damon Wise Deadline Hollywood Daily The Adults is a comedy-drama that doesn’t seem to deliver much of either, and that gray, in-between state just isn’t appealing anymore. Oct 4, 2023 Full Review Chance Solem-Pfeifer Willamette Week The performances are all distinctly sad and believable, and Cera expertly channels his onscreen neuroses into a suspiciously over-controlled, serious-man façade. Rated: 3/4 Sep 28, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
