What to Know

Critics Consensus

Despite Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman's welcome return to rom-com territory, A Family Affair squabbles with its own tonality too much to elevate its litany of clichés.

A Family Affair (2024) | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Robert Levin Newsday The actors give it their all, but it's a movie you've seen a million times before. Rated: 2/4 Jul 9, 2024 Full Review A Family Affair (2024) | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Stephanie Zacharek TIME Magazine That’s Hollywood for you, and this is, after all, a film that takes place unapologetically in a land of fantasy. When it sparkles, which is often, it’s perfectly enjoyable... Jul 5, 2024 Full Review A Family Affair (2024) | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Karl Quinn The Age (Australia) It’s generic, predictable, mildly enjoyable and instantly forgettable. Whether or not her character is making a bad match with her hunky actor boyfriend, I reckon Kidman deserves a lot better than this insipidly formulaic pap. Rated: 2.5/5 Jul 5, 2024 Full Review A Family Affair (2024) | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Jennifer Green Common Sense Media King is the film's highlight. She's a natural comedian, and she and Efron have more chemistry as boss and beleaguered employee than Efron and Kidman do as a couple. Jul 9, 2024 Full Review A Family Affair (2024) | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Matt Pais MattPais.com Lazy, lifeless mush that finally answers, “What if a Hallmark Christmas movie tripped onto Netflix in late June?” Rated: D+ Jul 8, 2024 Full Review A Family Affair (2024) | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Rohan Naahar The Indian Express With zero chemistry between them, Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron are reduced to background noise in Netflix's misguided romantic comedy with a major protagonist problem.

Claire O Really unsure how Joey kings character became the bad guy. The mom is so toxic and Zac efrons character has a 180 in attitude without any character arc given for explanation. Wouldn’t watch again. Sad I watched the first time Rated 0.5/5 Stars • Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 07/10/24 Full Review Jasper R Nicole Kidman has had so much plastic surgery it’s hard to look away from her ridiculous face and concentrate on the very predictable and boilerplate script. It’s okay to age. She would look much better as her natural self then she does filled with fillers. Rated 1/5 Stars • Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/10/24 Full Review Gabriella T Watched it all the way through simply out of obligation. The entire plot was predictable. Additionally, the way it was acted out was horrendous. Not only were we cringing through the movie, but the characters were all very superficial and again predictable. Rated 1/5 Stars • Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/10/24 Full Review teresa v No chemistry between the two. Are we now normalizing toxic behavior?? And how was the daughter made to be the bad guy? The mom and Chris over stepped so many boundaries it was hard to watch Rated 1/5 Stars • Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/10/24 Full Review Jerry R Lots of bad reviews. Not from me, I loved this movie. Joey King, Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman were terrific as the leads in this production.The story while told many times was well handled by a fine director. Watch this movie and see how enjoyable it is. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/10/24 Full Review Zack D honestly - this looks like it was sponsored by the local plastic surgeon association. Rated 2/5 Stars • Rated 2 out of 5 stars 07/09/24 Full Review Read all reviews
