5 minutes into this movie, their children are knocking down garbage can in the community they show boys snorting crack? something? then you see how the two lesbian interact with the kids and with each other. ENOUGH! I could not watch this movie.

This is about a lesbian couple and their two children. The teen children find their "sperm donor" dad with sad results.
I checked out this movie as Mark Ruffalo was in it. He was excellent, but the movie was not uplifting and was actually rather sad.

A hateful, hate-mongering piece of JUNK. You would have to be a stereotypical man-hating bulld*ke to regard this movie's snide condemnation of the father figure as anything other than loathsome. Strictly for the anti-male, isolationist, estrogen crowd.

I love this movie. The outstanding cast brings these characters to life. I especially love Julianne Moore as the insecure Jules, formerly a stay-at-home mom who is now trying to get her landscaping business off the ground. The speech Jules gives toward the end of the movie in defense of her awful behavior is so funny and so human and so insightful. Highly recommended for anyone who likes realistic comedies about non-traditional families.

A very good cast makes this an enjoyable movie. I thought the story was ok, some good laughs and the story moved along well. Sure it’s not going to win an Academy award but it’s way better than a lot of the crap out there.

Morally offensive, in terms of the way the Ruffalo character gets shafted, while the smug, self-righteous Annette Bening caricature is held aloft as some sort of beacon of family values, when really she's just a condescending, ersatz liberal slime. The movie, unfortunately, doesn't just portray her mindset; it shares and endorses it.
