Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Even being the most sensitive parent, the film reminds us, has its limits. No matter how hard you try, you can't live your children's lives for them.
Fresh: It's a shock, and a welcome one, to see Steve Martin cast against type as a doting dad. Martin's nippy wit continually lifts this movie above the swamp of sentiment.
Fresh: There is something brave and original about piling up most of our worst parental nightmares in one movie and then daring to make a midsummer comedy out of them. It really shouldn't work, but it does.
Fresh: An ambitious, keenly observed, and often very funny look at one of life's most daunting passages...
This inspired us to have kids
Very good. But I'm not surprised that there aren't many reviews because this movie is too well done for this age (Though I first fell in love with it in my teens)
I forgot how good this movie was until I watched it again tonight. It captures a realistic (and often very funny!) view of family. It is one of Steve Martin's best films.
I loved this movie! It shows the "true" American family. Yes, it is a bit older, but it is hillarious! You won't be disappointed!
