The Kids Are All Right

Release Date: July 30th, 2010

AltAss Ratings (On a scale of 1 to 5 asses)


An original and solid premise is backed up well by a detail oriented plan for where the story is going and ending.

Writing / Production:                 

Moves well and does not drag in the manner that this type of film can be guilty of.  There were plenty of humorous moments and the tension and drama was very real.


Kudos to the entire cast for making the non-traditional family unit come alive on screen and making it real enough to expose the vast similarities to traditional experiences.  Moore, Bening, and Ruffalo are proven and talented actors and the kids really were quite alright and talented as well.


The most original picture I've seen in quite some time.  Even the things that are the same feel different while watching this film.


"The Kids Are All Right" is as moving as it is entertaining and most audiences will feel the angst of the characters throughout the film.  Religious fundamentalists will probably want to avoid this picture because it could cause their heads to explode but everyone else should give this film a look.
