Definitely for older teens. Very funny comedy pushing boundaries.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1 ):

Even the all-star cast struggles to keep the humor alive in this sweary family comedy centered around unlikable characters and bad behavior. A few moments land, but The Estate suffers from a lack of warmth and intelligence beyond jokes that may seem daring to some but low-brow poor taste to others.

At the center of the family battle, Turner is as charismatic and watchable as ever. But Oscar-nominee Collette is let down by a part that lacks complexity or depth. Faris, David Duchovny, Rosemarie DeWitt, and Ron Livingston all show up and do their thing, but that thing quickly becomes tiresome. While the humor may proudly cross lines, it never does so with much originality, leaving the plot to tread heavily toward its inevitable conclusion.
