FAMILY Review

Bolstered by a great supporting cast, including Brian Tyree Henry as Sensei Pete, Matt Walsh, Kate McKinnon and Allison Tolman, Family is a joyous film about celebrating our eccentricities and acknowledging that it’s the people in our lives who help to make us whole.

At its core, Shazam! is supposed to be fun, light and goofy, and Sandberg embodies this in the film, with DC’s most humorous movie to date.
