It's still a kick to watch Kathleen Turner don a housedress and trade soothing pieties with Richard Chamberlain. The Perfect Family feels like it could have been more than that, but I suppose counting its blessings is the more Christian thing to do. Read full review
Watching a consummate pro like Turner navigate an uneven script, veering from farcical determination, her cheeks puffed like those of a demented chipmunk, to utter devastation, can be immensely entertaining, particularly when she's backed by an able cast, as she is here. Read full review
This debut feature by Anne Renton doesn't quite find the proper tone to convey its heartfelt message. Read full review
Renton's approach is, to its benefit, fair and never strident. But it's also gentle and cautious, often to a fault. Read full review
