  1. It's the kind of small but amazing character study (think ``Marty'') that film lovers yearn for while griping that this type of picture no longer gets made. Turns out it does.
  2. 90
    A fairy tale that presents love as a case of mutual enchantment, Two Family House is not only uniformly well acted, superbly designed, lovingly lit, and sensitively scored, it's as romantic as it is funny.
  3. Reviewed by: Ernest Hardy
    90
    An unassuming little film that packs a huge emotional and artistic punch.
  4. 80
    Tenderhearted Staten Island Christmas comedy.
  5. A gentle, soulful comedy about everyday dreams and what it takes to make them come true.
  6. Brimming over with affection and humanity, this memory drama about the destruction of one family and the birth of another is nostalgic in a good sense: funny, bittersweet, poignant.
  7. Bighearted and wistful, but with no fresh spin or anything new to say.
