  1. El Biffo's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    Is "Cringeworthy" now a Genre? If so, this must be a significant example. Casting is perfect, with three of the most Cringeworthy actors in Hollywood: Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller, and Adam Sandler. Sandler's singing is as bad as could possibly be and still be believable. His limp is a brilliant idea, as it makes him look like even more of a jerk than he probably really is. 2.7*Curb Your Enthusiasm without the jokes.

  2. Michael Blouin's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    Magnifique et authentique (mais peut-être trop hermétique émotionnellement) portrait d'une famille dont les racines paternelles auront envenimé tout son entourage, de génération en génération, par son égocentrisme malsain. Vivre dans l'ombre des autres peut être difficile, mais cette anecdote familiale se traduit par l'humour et le cynisme, grâce à des interprètes saisissants (Sandler, Stiller, Marvel, Hoffman)

  3. Emily O's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    funny and tender. adam sandler of jack and jill elicits much pathos

  4. Leif Erikson's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    It's called flirting when you're young. I'm not sure what it's called when you're over 70.

  5. Nutter Jr's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    I really connected emotionally to this films and loved for its witty dialogues, quirky characters (with a number of really spot on performances), and dissection of what makes a family (with moments when it works and others where it doesn't).

  6. Scienceofphantoms's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    Surprised to have really adored this one. Baumbach has managed to turn constant anxiety into some sort of sublime experience. Like if Woody Allen knew how terrible his characters could be.

  7. Kamran's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    Quirky pseudo-intellectual banter. Interesting structure and cuts. 54/100 - Okay.

  8. Pango's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

  9. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    Although lacking the habitual attractive charm and magic spell that made Baumbach a treasure of the contemporary American cinema, “The Meyerowitz Stories” is perfectly good to watch, demonstrating a genuine keenness to amuse.

  10. Matt Richards's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    Dialogue, dialogue and more. This really moves along at a cracking pace in that wordy, neurotic Woody Allen flavour. Digging deep into the deeply flawed family unit there is much to like here with great performances across the board. A touch too long for my money. 3 stars

  11. gld48's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    Wordy script does not mean great script. Obnoxiously a NYC story. Tiring of Baumbach now. Hoffman is the best thing here.

  12. G. Thomas Esmay's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    8.5/10. Sweet, funny and tinged with that love-hate feeling you reserve for family, THE MEYEROWITZ STORIES is a terrific, poignant achievement. The cast all bring top notch performances only enhanced by the humorous cinematic conventions that Baumbach employs.

  13. angelicidea's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    The very definition of bittersweet. It is such a rare treat to watch a film with outstanding performances from all the actors. What a quirky way to direct a film, too!

  14. afuchs's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    Not bad, but grotesquely uninteresting.

  15. Jacques de Villiers's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    I always appreciate movies that put cinematic experimentation at the service of human emotion, especially when it's done in such a playful way. But the movie ultimately didn't work as a whole. It feels lopsided, the 1st half much better than the 2nd. In the latter the movie overreaches, failing to make its tangential screwball drama work, when it really doesn’t even have to try, since its quieter scenes are so good.

  16. Federico D'Accinni's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    An old father on a hospital bed forces three siblings to spend some time together and re-discover each other; all that sounds like a story we have already seen on screen hundreds of times. But Baumbach brings his own touch - dry humour, hyper-articulate characters, incisive dialogues - and what a film he makes! A slow-burning dramedy that looks at the intimacy of a disconnected family with fresh and melancholic eyes.

  17. Zach Closs's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    I can see how a Woody Allen fan might appreciate it; I am not, and did not. These characters are exhaustingly pretentious and self-absorbed, and the film's treatment of them is shallow and cruel. The pornographic subplot with young Grace Van Patten, who might be the only sympathetic character in the film, is weird and even creepy.

  18. wi.bi's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    as usual... Noach Baumbach.... this is heartwarming film that made you more in love with your family. no matter how useless or annoying your family member is.

  20. FCC 86's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    "You should see the other dog"

  21. Harriehhh's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    Noah Baumbach’s The Royal Tenenbaums is dry, shallow and pretentious, which makes me question why I still bother to watch his films. Still, it’s nice to see Sandler in something of a credible role for the first time in years, and the Sigourney Weaver cameo was entirely welcome.

  22. Konrad Szlendak's rating of the film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    So Sandler can actually play. Who knew?
