"...[A] wryly comic mood piece....Scenes move from hurt to resigned laughter and ring poignantly true..." Rolling Stone "...[The dialogue] scales the heights of post-Salinger acidity and provides an element of charming pathos..." -- Rating: B+Entertainment Weekly "...An easy, low-key tone, with nicely framed shots and subtle camera movements....Baumbach draws good performances from his cast..." Variety "...Baumbach surely does make these characters, all of whom are impeccably acted, absolutely real....Baumbach builds unobtrusively to a knock-your-socks-off finish that allows KICKING AND SCREAMING to conclude on its strongest note..." Los Angeles Times "...[The film has] a good eye and a terrific ear..."Chicago Sun-Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he balance is introspective, goofy, sharp, and every bit as relevant at the beginning of this century as it was at the end of the last decade."Premiere19.7556
