Critic Reviews for Fighting with My Family

All Critics (53) | Top Critics (15)

Both an offbeat comedy and classically rousing underdog tale, this indie film's heart somehow exceeds the size of Dwayne Johnson's bulging biceps.

Feb 15, 2019 | Full Review…

Plenty of family comedies include some grappling, but there's just one I can think of that boasts a piledriver.

Feb 14, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Within the context of a sport that thrives on artifice, writer-director Stephen Merchant spins a story whose emotions feel entirely genuine.

Feb 14, 2019 | Full Review…

It's often broadly funny but never mean or patronizing; it takes the Knights, their eccentricities and quixotic aspirations seriously, but not enough to squelch the fun.

Feb 13, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a compelling and likable cast (Frost, in particular, is a standout), and Merchant keeps the film, for all its sports-movie clichés, mostly lively, good-hearted and consistently funny.

Feb 13, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

What's surprising is how well all of this suplex-to-nuts biopic works...[but] see it for Florence Pugh's fireplug turn.
