  • Keaton, a sorceress at blending humor and heartbreak, honors the film with a grace that makes it stick in the memory. show more

  • The slapstick weeper The Family Stone is a lump of coal brightened by four diamond-sharp performances. show more

  • Spends too much time on unconvincing romantic-comedy contrivances to be consistently engaging. Throughout the uneven film and its mixed bag of performances, the compelling point of focus is Diane Keaton's smart, funny, spot-on natural portrait of the formidable Stone matriarch. show more

    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
