Ideal Home (2018)



Critic Consensus: Ideal Home benefits from the chemistry between a well-chosen cast, whose work helps tip the scales against the script's inconsistent -- and occasionally retrograde -- humor.

Movie Info

Celebrity chef Erasmus (Steve Coogan) and his partner Paul (Paul Rudd) have a happy and rather self-indulgent life together. Their perfect existence is turned upside down when, at a dinner party, Erasmus is confronted by the grandson he never knew he had. With the child's father in prison it seems he has nowhere else to go and so, after much debate they decide to take him in. With changes and challenges on both sides, this could prove a recipe for disaster. Filled with heart and humor, this new family looks set to serve up one of the most deliciously funny films of the year.

Critic Reviews for Ideal Home

All Critics (53) | Top Critics (17)

This is a slight film, but it is a low-key delight.

Maybe it's all a meta joke? Or an ironic bad-taste prank? Let's hope so.

There are simply no funny lines here.

Ideal Home may not startle us with its plot twists but it's a good deal fresher and more irreverent than most family fables - and it never gets too preachy either.

July 5, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Plotted this thinly, and played this unevenly, it can't get to the finish line with good intentions alone.

July 5, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Andrew Fleming wrote and directed, like a man who has heard of the gay freedom revolution but is still stuck mentally in the age of queenery and innuendo garnished with lip-service liberalism.
