Rated R · 104 minutes · 2010

Comedy drama
Julianne Moore, Annette Bening and Mark Ruffalo deliver some of the year’s finest performances in director Lisa Cholodenko’s funny, emotional tornado of a movie. Moore and Bening play Jules and Nic, a lesbian couple with two children (Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutcherson) conceived through artificial insemination. The kids choose to meet their biological father (Ruffalo, who has never been so good), and all sorts of complications—both funny and heart-wrenching—ensue. This is a great movie about the challenge of keeping a marriage afloat as the years pile on, and the kids get older. Bening and Moore are so good that it hurts; they have major chemistry. Ruffalo gets high marks for his portrayal of a super-charming bastard of a man.

Portland Mercury Daddy Dearest The Kids Are All Right: Finally, a movie uses Mark Ruffalo's sperm as a major plot point. by Alison Hallett 07/15/2010
Charleston City Paper Annette Bening and Julianne Moore play house The kids are all right in The Kids Are All Right. The adults are pretty screwed up — though not in a bad way. They're messed up in a normal way, a way that comes from living a full, complicated adult life wherein you don't always make the best decisions and don't run away from the consequences when you do. Wherein you make some damn good decisions and enjoy the happiness it brings until the bad decisions threaten to smack you and ask you, "What were you thinking?" And, indeed, you have to ask yourself, "What was I thinking?" by MaryAnn Johanson 07/28/2010
