Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)” is a graceful and very, very funny examination of a dysfunctional Jewish family that, as Baumbach noted in the [New York Film Festival] press conference, “has replaced religion with art as a subject of worship.” Aging sculptor Harold (Dustin Hoffman at his most puckish), an all-but-forgotten minor talent, dominates and manipulates his children by several marriages — Danny (Adam Sandler), Matthew (Ben Stiller) and Jean (Elizabeth Marvel), each of whom feels he or she lets the old boy down by not pursuing a life in the arts. Over several months, this ill-matched quartet, joined by Harold’s dotty current wife Maureen (an unrecognizable but delightful Emma Thompson) and various artist friends and rivals, works through the issues of family and death, failure and disappointment. — George Robinson, The Jewish Week

"As is customary in Mr. Baumbach’s pictures, the acting is spectacular." — Glenn Kenney, The New York Times
