Performers, Cast and Crew:
New York Times - 11/16/2007
"[O]ften mercilessly, squirm-inducingly funny....Ms. Leigh and Mr. Black have never been better..."
Entertainment Weekly - 11/23/2007
"Baumbach possesses an infernally charming skill at leavening discomfort with wit, and a superb ear for the rhythms of chattering-class pscyho-destruction." -- Grade: A-
Box Office - 12/01/2007
"Kidman has rarely been this fine....[Leigh] matches some of her best early work..."
Rolling Stone - 11/29/2007
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Baumbach, with acute intelligence and annihilating wit, writes people with flaws we can recognize as our own....Leigh and Kidman ignite in wounding scenes..."
Los Angeles Times - 11/21/2007
"[T]here is a rawness to the characterization in this lacerating film that pushes family drama right to the edge."
Empire - 03/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "[Baumbach] again delivers the perfect, pithy dialogue which so impressed in the past....There is no doubting Baumbach's craft and talent."
Sight and Sound - 03/01/2008
"[Kidman] delivers a marvellous portrait of fragile egotism -- snide and hubristic, at once sharply perceptive and staggeringly insensitive."
Ultimate DVD - 05/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's an interesting experience fuelled by some excellent performances, not least from Black who proves he's not just a one trick comedy pony."
