  1. Jesse Wigutow's screenplay is one of those marvels of economy, idiomatic facility and well-chosen detail that knows exactly when to cut away from a scene without grinding it into your face.

    Uneasily pivots between comedy and drama, with its best parts strongly reminiscent of Schepisi's previous, British-made drama about aging and dying buddies, "Last Orders."

    Father and son Kirk and Michael Douglas' moments together are among the movie's best.
  4. 50
    Sluggish comedy drama.

    It's ''Hannah and Her Sisters'' with all the emotions and half the artistry.
  6. 40
    The question is not how bad this excuse for a domestic comedy is (medium cringe), but how the gifted Fred Schepisi got suckered into directing a vanity project.
  7. Achingly long and pointless, "Runs" is a movie about family that's dishonest in its presentation of every relationship.

    The Douglas Family Reunion simply did not work on-screen. Can't say I'm surprised either. It Runs in the Family is a below-average romp without any quality humor. Expand
