Okay, this dysfunctional family makes my dysfunctional family seem normal. The dinner table scene is so close to several I have attended. And Julia not looking really glamour ? There is hope for us regular people.
Probably not the best for the under 12 age.

This movie is ugly, coarse, vulgar, tasteless, with no socially redeeming characteristics whatsoever.

one of the worst movies of the year.
I would not recommend this to anyone and told people to avoid it.
very sad and depressing.
the only person who enjoyed the movie was the father figure who killed himself at the beginning which brought the unhappy clan together. unfortunately for the audience we have to witness their misery and dysfunction. I wanted the rest of the characters to join their father and save us from anymore of their misery.

I agree with all the other comments. if you do not see this movie, you are not missing a thing. too bad, good cast

Star-studded but lacklustre, AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY failed to live up to my expectations. I don't know what else to say. The story felt like it was building to some revelation but it really led to nothing. The whole family is acrimonious and there doesn't seem to be a happy ending in sight. The way I see it, this film is 121 minutes I'll never get back. What a disappointment. I don't recommend it.

From the list of actors this movie alone this movie looks amazing. The trailer made this movie out to be a funny family type movie. Not so. This a depressing, boring, pointless movie. The acting was excellent, just a waste of good talent making this movie. If you want to see what a dysfunctional family looks like then you might want to watch this movie. Very sad.

A lot of over-acting here, and Meryl Streep is the worst offender. What works as theatre doesn't always work as a movie, and this doesn't. It comes across as just a lot of stars delivering muck.

Terrific acting, but in the service of a pointless and depressing story.

Very depressing movie. Dark side of a dysfunctional family of alcoholics, drugs addiction, incest, and infidelity.

The actors and actresses were good in their roles but I was very disappointed to hear Julia Roberts using the horribly foul language. I'm surprised she accepted this role after reading the script.

I would not recommend watching. There are much better movies to spend time watching.

Beverly: Violet. My wife.
She takes pills,
sometimes a great many.
The facts are:
my wife takes pills and I drink.
That’s the bargain we’ve struck, a
little paragraph of our marriage contract...Rather than..
once more vow abstinence
with my fingers crossed.
I’ve chosen to turn my life over
to a Higher Power..
and join the ranks of the Hiring Class. (He hired Johnna, an Injun as domestic help as his wife was fighting mouth cancer.)
It’s not a decision with
which I’m entirely comfortable.
I mean, I know how to launder my..
...dirty undies. Done it all my life,
but I’m finding that
it’s getting in the way of my drinking.

Barbara (Oldest Daughter): It's the pills talking.
Violet (Mother doped up): Pills can't talk!
...
Violet: You can't do this! This is my house! This is my house!
Barbara: You don't get it, do you? You don't get it! I AM running things now!

Beverly: "Life is very long...”
TS Eliot.
Not the first person to say it,
certainly not the first person to think it.
But he’s given credit for it because
he bothered to write it down.
Now, if you say it,
you have to say his name after it.
“Life is very long:” TS Eliot.
