  1. A serious romantic comedy of such strength and substance and so entertaining that it doesn't matter that its minuscule budget shows around the edges.
  2. Until now, it may not have occurred to you that what we needed was a witty lesbian romance. Once you see A Family Affair, you realize what we've been missing.

    It's a pleasure to see acceptance portrayed so matter-of-factly. May never happen in our lifetimes, but Lesnick's vision of tolerance is a soothing thought, anyway.

    Sharp wit but shaky storytelling.
  5. 50
    Lesnick seems to be saying that lesbian characters on screen can also meet cute significant others, spar in a lite Woody Allen fashion, and have a happy, sappy Hollywood ending. But a sitcom is still a sitcom -- gay, Greek or otherwise.
  6. The couple's parents have a bit more personality than the other characters, but on the whole this is strictly by the numbers.
  7. 30
    Barely competent. The pacing never accelerates beyond sluggish, and Lesnick's script is an awkward pile of gag lines.
