Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy (Dark) Drama - This is an extremely dark comedy touching issues such as drug abuse and incest. Being a big ensemble piece, while Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts have the focal roles, everyone in the familiar cast gets their moments to shine. Nonstop language, drugs and alcohol, and very adult subject matter make the film strictly for adults.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good What compensates for any claustrophobia is a cast that's as bedecked and bedazzled with Oscar trophies and nominations as they come.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts lead a standout cast in this dark but realistic adaptation of the Tracy Letts play.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Above Average Despite some moments of caustic humor, highlighted in the film's misleading trailer, 'August: Osage County' is in no way a comedy.

NY Post Full Review
Above Average There is still enough venom spilled in "August: Osage County" to make this drama relatable to anyone who's suffered through a wildly dysfunctional family dinner — and who hasn't, especially at this time of year?

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 197 moviegoers:
USE CAUTION when selecting this movie! It contains extreme language and dark/depressing subject matter. As these reviews indicate, this movie isn't for everyone.
TEENS: The three females all felt it was just an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The lone male loved it. The female reviews are very mixed. Just over half either loved it or enjoyed it very much. Most of the remaining half rated it "average," but a few rated it "poor."
ADULTS:The male and female reviews are almost identical. About 40% loved it and 25% rated it "above average." Most of the remaining 35% rated it "average," except for about 10% who rated it low to very low.
