Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This is one busy wannabe heart-tugger. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: A feel-bad holiday film about a repellent family, with a milquetoast dad and a smug, devious harpy of a mom. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: A machine-tooled entertainment that's as fake and flimsy as a plastic Christmas tree. – Jami Bernard, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The Family Stone is a satisfying, big-hearted celebration of diversity that will brighten holiday moviegoing - - at least in the blue states. – Lou Lumenick, New York Post, Jun 24, 2010

this is one of my favorite movies! Rachel McAdams is my favorite actress ever! she did a great job on this movie(she always does)! this movie will make u LOL! i <3 u rachel!!!

a favorite ...

super funny, wickedly clever banter & amazing cast. sweet & humbling story -line. you'll want to see it more than once.


I was surprised at how good this was. it is a formula that works with just the right amount of tweaking. The acting is nothing grand, but the ensemble cast works well together to make a believable story. And the plot was very well thought out, while the production was well executed. It's not overly mushy or emotional, but strikes at a certain truth of family life.
