David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

Paul M. Bradshaw Total Film
July 31, 2013 Ambitiously probing every anxiety-ridden corner of the suburban mum-and-dad experience, some of its interconnecting story strands work better than others.Read in Source
John Ferguson Radio Times
July 31, 2013 This feel-good family ensemble piece from director Ron Howard manages to avoid being oversentimental, and the result is an affectionate, leisurely comedy about the joys (and otherwise) of bringing up children.Read in Source
Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader

Jay Boyar Orlando Sentinel

Candice Russell South Florida Sun-Sentinel
July 31, 2013 As Parenthood reveals within its charming, two-hour running time, the pitfalls and quandaries of child-rearing are universal -- and the joys and the heartaches remain lifelong concerns.Read in Source
Dennis King Tulsa World
August 13, 2014 It's hard to imagine a theme more universal and filled with human pitfalls than parenthood. And it's hard to imagine a movie treatment of that theme more humane and filled with gentle sympathy than director Ron Howard's Parenthood.Read in Source
