A horribly awful movie. It was not only awkward but completely useless. It had no meaning and Sarah Jessica Parker was the WORST! Awkward, horrible movie to skip. Well, actually see it and write a truthful review because these others that say see it aren't truthful.

I loved this movie. I was crying so hard at the end, I couldn't actually leave the theatre until about 5 minutes after the credits had rolled. It's a perfectly weighted, beautifully filmed, well told story.

I LOVED this movie...Keaton & Nelson were fabulous and the girl who played Amy was fantastic....I don't know what it is but people like SJP and J.Aniston (I know JA wasn't in family stone) but they are just NOT believable in movie's....nothing is wrong with the small screen. As far as the big screen, it ain't working

The performances are delightful, and the picture comes together. Full Review

This is the best adult holiday film in a while. Full Review
Justin Chang
Keaton embodies the formidable Stone matriarch with an offhand sense of humor that cuts like a knife. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
A film that's at times as ragged and shaggy as its family unit. But as written and directed by Thomas Bezucha, its offbeat mixture of highly choreographed comic crises and the occasional bite of reality make for an unexpectedly enticing blend. Full Review

Parker has a great time being the antiCarrie Bradshaw while Keaton-as-matriarch is a particular joy -- funny, beautiful, elegant, touching, and at ease with a familiar, get-out-your-hankies holiday subplot. Full Review
