Comedy drama
Jason Bateman takes a stab at my favorite film category ā€” the vaguely academic, dysfunctional family comic drama, as perfected by Wes Anderson, Nicole Holofcener, Tamara Jenkins, and Noah Baumbach ā€” to pretty okay effect! Working from a script by playwright David Lindsay-Abaire about the disaffected adult children of maybe-psychotic performance artists, The Family Fang can be slow, and it lacks the charming idiosyncrasies that make those other movies enjoyable, and Nicole Kidman's American accent is distractingly bad. But its moments of brilliant art-world satire and actual plot twists (!) are enough to keep things interesting (104 min.).
