Animated Jim Carrey may be even more unsettling than real Jim Carrey.
The Kids Are All Right stars Annette Bening and Julianne Moore as a middle aged, upper middle class lesbian couple in Southern California, whose relationship problems are magnified under the stress of their two teenage children's (one of whom is named Laser) freewheelin', organic farming sperm donor (Mark Ruffalo) suddenly becoming a part of their lives. That description may be a hard sell (it certainly was for me), making the movie sound like some seriously insufferable, overly quirky arthouse garbage, but the movie's script, direction and cast transcend what could have been the most annoying movie I've seen since 500 Days of Summer. This movie is actually incredibly good, refreshingly self-aware, honestly very funny and wonderfully moving. Who knew?
