Academy Award®-nominees Annette Bening and Julianne Moore star in this funny, smart and vibrant portrait of a modern American family. Nic (Bening) and Jules (Moore) are your average suburban couple raising their two teens, Joni (Mia Wasikowska) and Laser (Josh Hutcherson), in Southern California. But when the kids secretly track down their “donor dad,” Paul (Mark Ruffalo), an unexpected new chapter begins for everyone as family ties are defined, re-defined and then re-re-defined. Fall in love with the big-hearted comedy that critics are calling “one of the best films of the year!”

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Sophisticated and funny, but once you get past the unusual premise and the fact that the main couple is realistically portrayed, there's nothing surprising about it.
Fresh: A light, lovingly handled tale about the difficulties of staying in love.
Fresh: This is a much better made, more persuasive film than The Switch or The Back-Up Plan but just as much about wish fulfilment, and no more honest about conflicts that can leave the kids far from all right.
Fresh: There are few films as soulful and human as Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right. That a film can set itself apart from the pack by merely being human is somewhat depressing, but there you have it.
This movie is getting good reviews purely because it's edgy, the film itself really isn't that great. At best, wait for the rental.
Just Another Affair Story
Silly me, I thought this movie was going to be about the kids, their relationships with their two moms, and finding their biological dad. So much for that thought. This was just another movie about a marriage hitting a bump and a stupid affair. So much potential here just thrown away. Very disappointing.
The Kids should escape....
The story of a Lesbian couple whose children get in touch with their "donor".
While the kids are great, the adults are really without any redeeming characteristics.
The trailer makes you believe this is a comedy, its not. Do lesbians really watch
gay, male, porn for excitement? Not recommended.
