“Kidman deserves better than this bland formula”: We’ve compiled the funniest reviews of the Netflix rom-com – Movie News

Released on June 28, Netflix’s romantic comedy “The Family Guy” quickly rose to the top of the platform’s top films. However, on the critics’ side, the result is clear.

If we say Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron, you won’t immediately think of a Netflix romantic comedy. But rather of Lee Daniels’ film Paperboy and that famous scene that caused a lot of talk at the time where the Australian star urinates on the former Disney icon…

Twelve years later, they are reunited for a much more consensual film which highlights a love story between an older woman and a younger man.

In The Family Guy, Zac Efron plays Chris Cole, a very self-centered movie star who employs young Zara (Joey King) as his assistant (and almost nanny!). But it is Zara’s mother, Brooke (Nicole Kidman), that Chris Cole falls in love with from their first meeting, which makes sparks fly.

On AlloCiné, the film is not entitled to the leniency of Netflix subscribers and receives an average of 1.9 out of 5 for a total of 273 ratings at the time of writing. And on the Anglo-Saxon press side, it is hardly more flattering. Here are the funniest reviews.

Without mercy

According to MattPais.com : “A lazy, lifeless mush that finally answers the question ‘What if a Hallmark Christmas movie dropped on Netflix at the end of June?’

According to The Indian Express : “Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron Serve as Stale Leftovers in Failed Netflix Clone of The Idea of ​​Being With You

According to film-authority.com : “The Family Underbelly plays out like a romantic comedy/sitcom without the laughs, offering a touch of drunken fantasy that is as wet and sticky as it is tedious to clean up afterwards…

According to We’re Watching What?! : “This film offers nothing more than a story that boils down to watercolour, but with dried and crusty paint. Given the level of talent involved, the lack of charm and chemistry results in a background film at best.

According to The Age (Australia) : “It’s generic, predictable, mildly enjoyable, and instantly forgettable. Whether or not her character makes a bad pairing with her super-hung actor boyfriend, I think Kidman deserves much better than this bland formula.

According to SSG Syndicate : “Netflix has released a lukewarm Hallmark movie… characterized by total predictability, including celebrating a snowy Christmas in a remote mountain cabin.

According to Globe and Mail : “A production so strangely conceived and executed that you have to see it to truly understand what the big algorithms think subscribers want.

According to Movie Nation : “The effort to find laughs is felt… It’s deadly in a romantic comedy.

American critics are a bit harsh. If the film does not reinvent the genre, it allows the viewer who does not want to rack his brains, to embark on a nice little story where everyone is happy at the end.

The Family Secret is currently available on Netflix.
