Qarlos J (au) wrote: "La Otra Familia" is a feeble attempt to talk about gay parenting and what its consequences can be in a two-faced society. Bad actors can't actually make this melodrama convincing. The plot is rather predictable in an annoying way and the whole direction seems to have too many things to cover and little know-how.
Brian B (de) wrote: This was just another terrible attempt at a sequel. The only good movie of the entire franchise was the original. The last movie tops it off for being the worst of them all.
George P (jp) wrote: The actors in this film cannot act. The script is dire. The story drawn out and obvious. The only good thing about this film is the man who get buried in shit.
Jeff D (es) wrote: A little off beat and seems slow to begin with, but once into the movie and you are paying attention to names, it picks up interest greatly. Love Whitaker's character!

Lisa S (mx) wrote: Absolutely horrible film, I sold my video of it for a couple cents, it wasn't even worth that much. Not only a bad story, but also bad acting, directing, lighting, cinematography, sound...well let's just say it didn't have much going for it.

A critic wrote that an R rating would make it way better, not having one make it kinda lame. Still with all its clichs and predictability I still remember it whenever I'm the only male in the gyms step or dance classes. And it also has one of the most memorable dialogues I've ever seen:What do the Panthers have that you don't have?- Skills.- Athleticism.- Kickass cheers.- Laser hair removal.- Big-ass titties. I'm just saying.- Confidence. They're cocky assholes. Like Nick, the cockiest asshole on the football field. That's why he's good.- He's right. I'm awesome.- Because he believes in himself.- Also because I'm awesome.- He knows he's gonna be good, so he's good. And he takes chances.- Not hard due to the fact that I'm awesome.- Nick. Trying to make a speech here.

Allan C (jp) wrote: I've always thought this was an underrated genre mashup. Director/Co-writer David Twohy, with the exception of the overblown "The Chronicles of Riddick," has a track record of writing and/or directing some smart, exciting films ("Pitch Black," "The Arrival," "The Fugitive," "A Perfect Getaway," and I'd even include "Terminal Velocity"). This film was also co-written by Darren ("Requiem for a Dream," "Black Swan") Aronofsky and is an interesting mix of WWII submarine films and ghost stories. The film works great simply as a tale of WWII intrigue and suspense, but adding elements of ghost and hauntings brought something new and interesting to a pretty well worn formula. And in terms of telling a ghost story, the film thankfully goes to route of "The Haunting" or "The Innocents" and leaves it open as to whether something supernatural is going on or if characters are simply getting scared and paranoid, imagining ghostly activities. Another reason I think I'm partial to this film is Bruce Greenwood as the ship's commanding officer, who I've always liked and felt should be in a lot more films. Olivia Williams is also good. However, it's not a perfect film and and does have it's flaws, the main one for me being Twohy's decision to do one too many cheap scares instead of relying on the suspense and atmosphere that he'd so nicely built. I'd also say the rest of the cast is merely adequate. It's not a perfect film, but it's a clever supernatural thriller.
