Despite the reviews that say it's an anti-Catholic movie, it's not.It's a movie about a family, and the mother happens to be Catholic andstruggling between her reality and the reality of the church to whichshe belongs....which happens to be Catholic.

Just sit back and watch the movie - it's got some nice,thought-provoking dialog and if you have to tear a movie down becauseit makes you ask questions....then maybe you should focus on your ownlife and stop watching movies!

Mister Ritter is also a treat to watch, so much like his father, whowould be proud to see what a nice actor his son has become.

As a fallen-down Catholic with reservations about the Church, I wasn'tprepared for an even-tempered story about a devout mother, Eileen(Kathleen Turner) facing a family at odds with some basic Churchdoctrines. While I still stay away, I found The Perfect Family wiseabout the devotion of true believers and wary of extremists.

Eileen has been nominated for Catholic Woman of the Year (disclosure:one of my former wives was elected Vermont Catholic Mother of theYear—a true irony). In order to impress the archbishop, she must showan exemplary family. Not easy, as she discovers a son about to divorceand a daughter marrying a woman and having a child. Modern as thesesituations are, they are not acceptable to the teachings of the churchabout the sanctity of marriage and children born of that union. Thefilm gently but assuredly moves Eileen's life along just as you mightexpect it to go with any contemporary Catholic family facing decisions.

Although the denouement is too pat, it doesn't deviate too much fromwhat might really happen, and with a little surprise accompanying itall. Kathleen Turner provides the right amount of hyper-ventilationwhen faced with the truth of her children's situations and her formerlyalcoholic husband. Richard Chamberlain as Monsignor Murphy showsdirector Anne Renton's sense of humor using an actor who played a randyprelate in The Thorn Birds. In Catholic town, nothing is as it seemsexcept for my very real indoctrination by the Sisters of Saint Joseph.

I'm surprised at such a low score for this movie! First, please knowthat I was born, baptized, and raised Catholic. I've since moved toanother religion, but not for any "Catholic hate" reasons at all. So Ihave a STRONG knowledge of Catholicism. It seems MOST of the negativereviews claim it's "Christian/Catholic bashing"... I would wonder howmany of those folks actually WATCHED it or just wrote a review based ona presupposed notion. There is NO Christian bashing at all IMO. Justportraying people such as I've known all my life the way they are, andthe portrayal isn't bad in any way, as far as I'm concerned.

Overall it's very balanced - yeah there's a few potshots at Catholics("I don't have to think... I'm Catholic") but overall, the portrayal isVERY accurate to my Catholic upbringing and those in the faith I knowtoday. Sure, hardly ANY nuns still wear the habit - but it's justlittle things. By and large the portrayal I thought was fair on ALLSIDES, not only for the Catholics but all the other characters.

I'll be honest and say I FULLY EXPECTED a "Christians are stupidknuckle dragging Neanderthals" flick - I expected to shut it off halfway through. Instead, I watched the whole thing and rather enjoyed it.

The movie itself actually plays quite well - Kathleen Turner takes abit of getting used to because of her very deep, manly voice... butoverall, it has a nicely done "indie" feel to it in every way.

No, it's NOT an award contender in any way - some of the acting israther stiff and forced, the plot is predictable, and there are quite afew clichés and stereotypes. But it's VERY watchable, totally held myattention, was touching in places, and ENJOYABLE to watch right up tothe end for me.

Give it a shot - don't let the negative reviews implying it's a"Christian bashing" flick deter you.
