Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A chronicle of ordinary life that is partly a scrapbook, partly a memoir and, most movingly, an essay on the passage of time and the mysterious connections between parents and children. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Oct 29, 2010

Fresh: Block wears his neuroses so guilelessly on his sleeve and organizes his material with such skill, that what might have been insufferable navel-gazing attains poignancy. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Nov 11, 2010

Fresh: The same qualities that sometimes make The Kids Grow Up tough to watch also make it irresistible. – Andrew O'Hehir,, Oct 28, 2010

Rotten: Maybe being able to look back in time is comforting for Block and company, but what makes him think complete strangers give a damn about his not-especially-interesting family? – V.A. Musetto, New York Post, Oct 29, 2010
