Description

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!”

  • Awful

    That word pretty much covers it. I dare say the lesbian community would have found this quite appalling….didn’t you know every lesbian is just waiting to be screwed by a guy?!? The acting was bad and the relationship between the two main female characters was really fake and over acted. Mind, I dare say the director needs a serious kick in the but here for allowing this to all go on. A waste of money and I would not recommend it at all,
  • Can't get through this movie

    I wanted to see this for a long time but it wasn't available to rent. Now that it is I just cannot get through the movie. I watch ten minutes, surf the internet for ten minutes, try again. Geezus. This is horrible. I agree with most of the other reviews. No chemistry between characters that you automatically hate from the beginning. No attempt to redeem or flesh them out. Painful to watch unrealistic sex. Why do we always have to watch two straight women pretend to be gay? Just get real lesbians to play the part. I'm giving up because I know I'll wish I could get my time back. If only there was a refund button on iTunes if we don't finish 75% of the movie.

    First of all, forlorn reverie, that "boy" is Josh Hutcherson. I'm 11. And I watched it because I thought it was a heart warming drama. Is the cover sopposed to be a trick? I found this movie HIGHLY disturbing! :(

    This movie was o.k. The cast was great, and the story was good. Felt it could have moved just a little faster.

    Just a really slow and truncated movie. I believe in the cause, but this movie does not help it...

    I loved this movie. It surprised me in the best ways possible and I felt that I really understood the characters, their motivations an their emotions. Really great.
  • Outstanding.

    This movie is perfect. There are so many things at play in this story and yet it’s very relevant and real. As a decidedly straight guy, this has opened my eyes and my heart to emotions that I didn’t know existed and could exist. This movie is true and relevant art.
  • This movie is awful

    I saw this movie and it is just crap I mean the stuff the woman does to her wife. SPOILER ALERT The woman cheats on her wife like 6 times!!!! With the father of the children, he was a sperm donor. This woman is a lazy stay at home mom who has a "cute" little business where she HORRIBLY landscapes people back patios. While her wife actually works as a full time doctor to support her and their kids. Anyway this !ss$ole cheats on her 6 times and just complains how hard marriage is causing the actual hard working wife to take her back! F$&K THIS MOVIE!!!
  • Ugh...

    *Spoilers!!!* Not one redeeming character at all. All of the characters were just ridiculous and self-absorbed. The doctor - her sins were obvious: Overbearing, patronising. Nothing redeemble. Control freak. Alcoholic. Did she have a good side? I realize that this movie wanted to showcase flawed people but seriously, did this woman have a good side? The red head was an irresponsible, immature, self-absorbed, disaster who fired a worker because she didn't like the way she looked at her. Was this supposed to be funny that she wasted his time and made someone unemployed for something as petty as an innocuous look. Ridiculous. After driving the daughter 8 hours to college, she promptly tells her family to leave her alone. They just drove her 8 hours and she can't wait 30 minutes until they leave to have some quiet time? -.- I left this movie strongly disliking all of the characters, getting absolutely nothing from this movie. All of us are flawed but seriously, none of them learned anything or evolved in this movie for the better. It gets 2 stars however because the acting from everyone was superb. Mark Ruffalo played an old, tool failure quite well. The surroundings were beautiful. Other than that, the plot was boring and unbelievable. Seriously after 10+ years of marriage, red head is willing to throw it all away for some man? Ugh, you don't have to be a lesbian to be annoyed at that boring, contrived "plot twist". Another woman would have been more convincing or at least those two (red head and sperm donor) should have known each other longer than the 2 weeks. And talk about minimal chemistry to illicit an affair after 10+ years of marriage. Very disappointed. This movie was hyped up so much.
  • Yes... Watch it
