Ideal Home - 1 Star

Unfunny and mediocre, it just falls flat.

A bickering gay couple must now deal with the unexpected task of raising a ten-year-old boy.

Paul Rudd and Steve Coogan are purely playing archetypes without any real heart or soul. The rest of the cast do their best with the bad material, but it isn’t enough to save this travesty.

The supposedly uplifting message about family is not only predictable, but extremely clichéd. Director/writer Andrew Flemming has failed to create something new or add to the stale genre and the film, while tolerable is not in any way, shape or form enjoyable.

Overall one to avoid.

1 Star
