#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Nic and Jules are in a long term, committed, loving but by no means perfect same-sex relationship. Nic, a physician, needs to wield what she believes is control, whereas Jules, under that control, is less self-assured. During their relationship, Jules has floundered in her “nine to five” life, sometimes trying to start a business – always unsuccessfully – or being the stay-at-home mom. She is currently trying to start a landscape design business. They have two teen-aged children, Joni (conceived by Nic) and Laser (by Jules). Although not exact replicas, each offspring does more closely resemble his/her biological mother in temperament. Joni and Laser are also half-siblings, having the same unknown sperm donor father. Shortly after Joni’s eighteenth birthday and shortly before she plans to leave the house and head off to college, Laser, only fifteen and underage to do so, pleads with her to try and contact their sperm donor father. Somewhat reluctantly, she does. He is late thirty-something Paul, a co-op farmer and restaurateur. Despite his seemingly successful businesses, Paul has always shirked responsibility, most specifically in his personal life. After Joni and Laser meet with Paul, Nic and Jules learn what their children have done and, although they don’t want Paul infiltrating their lives, want to meet him – especially as Joni and Laser seem to want to maintain some sort of relationship with him. As Paul’s relationship with the entire family grows (which includes his hiring Jules to design and construct his backyard), they have an effect on what he wants in life. In turn, he affects their family dynamic as well as each person’s relationships outside of it.
Plot: Two women, Nic and Jules, brought a son and daughter into the world through artificial insemination. When one of their children reaches age, both kids go behind their mothers’ backs to meet with the donor. Life becomes so much more interesting when the father, two mothers and children start to become attached to each other.

Better than all right
The Kids Are All Right is one of those sweetly sentimental comedies that manages to be funny as well. It’s about a decidedly unorthodox family that’s far from perfect – and what happens when a so-called interloper arrives on the scene. It’s wonderfully acted, with affecting performances by Mark Ruffalo and Julianne Moore, and it’s engaging entertainment, no small feat when the subject of touching charm arises.
Nic (Annette Bening) and Jules (Moore) are a married lesbian couple in California with two kids, Laser (Josh Hutcherson) and Joni (Mia Washikowska). Two two kids – one for each mom – are the result of a sperm donor, and when Joni turns 18 she places a call to the sperm bank at her brother’s behest. The two wind up meeting Paul (Ruffalo) and hit it off, but when the two moms meet him, they have strikingly different reactions to his arrival.
There’s excellent conflict afoot here. The kids resent their moms for being so defensive about their wanting to know about their own biological father; the moms resent the kids for looking into the matter themselves. X is the calm, mediating type; she’s outwardly caring and splits her time between raising the two kids and starting new (doomed) businesses. By contrast, Nic is more inwardly insecure, and she compensates by controlling as much as possible of the lives of the other three. No wonder Paul’s appearance causes Nic to get her back up.
The movie isn’t one of those where increasingly wacky situations occur. It’s not a slammed-door comedy. People behave as if you’d expect them to behave, which is nice thing to see in a comedy (rather than exaggeration of gestures and speech, for example). Eventually, it isn’t enough that Paul shows up in everyone’s lives, disrupting what little harmony they have; something else happens as a result of his appearance that really behaves as the key conflict. And for once, when the culprits are confronted, there is no neatly tied response given by the rest of the family.
Another pleasant aspect of the movie is that it never treats the relationship between Bening and Moore as if it were anything but the most commonplace thing on earth. It’s not just that these two woman are married and in love, it’s that they’re also utterly human – they fight each other convincingly, they get their feelings hurt, and they reconcile with the kind of subtlety you rarely really see in movies these days. Each character, rather than being simply caricatures of what a straight person would assume a gay married couple would look like, has her own striking personality, and the two actresses perform quite well. I think Moore comes off a little better and that Bening’s character sometimes seemed a little one dimensional – but this is more likely an oversight on the part of the writer, not the actress. Ironically, it was Bening who received an Oscar nomination for this movie, but I think Moore’s work was superior here.
Overall, the script neither flashy nor contrived; situations don’t crop up just so we can have a laugh at someone’s expense. Well done.
The Kids Are All Right is a genuinely funny movie. It’s not a gagfest, and it wasn’t meant to be one. The characters are sincere but not always forthright; they all seem to make a bad decision or two in the movie. The cast was well selected (lest I forget, Ruffalo is aces as a laid-back buttinsky, if such a thing can exist), and it’s a movie worth seeing.
teenage kids discover lesbian mom’s sperm donor
This film advertises itself as dramady. Likable lesbian parents with traditional marriage issues of power and declining passion have two teen-age kids. The teens – age 15 and 18 discover a file with their birth mother’s sperm donor information. For the next hour we get nice acting – 60’s style guy (Paul) discovers he’s a dad, he awkwardly bonds with the kids and tussles with the moms over his intrusion into their lives. It’s cute and funny and the audience is waiting for the other shoe to drop. What the writer and director do next is unforgivable. The subservient mom – Jules, played by Julianne Moore – starts having sex with Paul while she supposedly landscapes his restaurant. This comes out of nowhere. Off course, dominate mom (Nick played by Annette Benning) discerns the betrayal and the kids find out. Jules is relegated to the couch at home for a couple of days. But, Paul gets the worst of it. The film ends with him ostracized by the kids while Jules is clearly forgiven – as if she was some bi-curious teenager who had a mistaken fling. We see scenes of Paul seriously contemplating changing his life as a result of his contact with his kids. No follow-up. Paul gets dissed when he shows up at the house before the teenage daughter goes to college. We don’t see him again. Meanwhile Jules and Nick kiss and make-up. The kids are the victim of Paul’s misdeeds with Jules but Jules is forgiven and Paul is abandoned. This is a well acted movie of the week with a mean spirited finish. I had hope that it would turn out better.
