Frank Pittman, who writes the “Reel Life” blog (“A shrink looks at men, women, marriage, movies, and more”) for Psychology Today, has set his sites on Lisa Cholodenko’s The Kids Are All Right. He sets up the film as an almost therapeutic case, looking at all the emotional angles and the possible causes and repercussions. But in the end, he breaks down.

What a wise movie, what a sexy movie, what humor. Great experience.

The kids are all right. So are the parents. And there's more than one way to skin a cat. I'll never forget Moore's last word: "Marriage is HARD!"
