Surprisingly sweet, funny and highly entertaining. One of the better familiy dramedies I've seen in a long time. Garcia is brilliant in this flick. Good performances by supporting cast as well.

Cute and loveable movie - - Andy Garcia is simply great in this role as an aspiring actor/parole officer trying to keep his family together. Lots of laughs.

Finally! A film worth Any Garcia's actting chops. Very entertaining dramedy with a superior script and excellent supporting cast.

User review rating: 4 July 21, 2010

Great script and wonderful cast set this film above most other summer dramas. Its nice to see Andy Garcia take on a role suitable for his talents. Supporting cast shines in this funny, heartfelt drama.

This family dramedy features the work of some fine New York actors.This film has a dysfunctional family and each member has a secret;but,the secrets are mostly mild and comedic rather then ghastly and life-destroying. Andy Garcia and Julianna Margulies(who seems to become more beautiful as she ages) are wonderful as the parents. This is one of the few movies where the art and craft of acting is examined.After secrets are revealed;there is much tears and laughter. So,what we have is a great date movie. What an antedote to a summer of mostly putrid hollywood films!

Andy Garcia puts down the gun and picks up some major kudos for this one. Well acted script dealing with lies and the family that keeps them. Supporting cast is top notch in this very entertaining slice of life.

Not exactly a 'sidesplitter' when it comes to comedy - but it does have it's moments.

Just ok

User review rating: 4 July 15, 2010

Great comedy in just the right doses. City Island is a relief from all the mediocre (comedy) Hollywood flicks of this year. Andy Garcia is definitely in his element.

User review rating: 3 July 13, 2010

Andy Garcia the highlight of this movie.

User review rating: 4 July 11, 2010

A funnly look at the workings of a family acted finely by its cast.

User review rating: 3 July 10, 2010

it was ok

User review rating: 4 July 10, 2010

It is an extremely dead-pan comedy and hilarious. The odd-ball stories of a normal average-day family!! Go see it!!

User review rating: 4 July 08, 2010

Funny and endearing, who thought Any Garcia could play a sympathetic character. Supporting cast is top notch in this heart warming and funny film.

User review rating: 0 July 08, 2010

Surprisingly good. One of those movies that you don't expect much from but which is sharply written, well performed and put together well. Andy Garcia reminds us that he should be doing bigger pictures than he is.

User review rating: 4 July 07, 2010

Well acted film with Garcia finally playing someone with substance. Supporting cast is equally entertaining in this well scripted dramedy.

User review rating: 4 July 07, 2010

great show

User review rating: 3 July 06, 2010

Nice change of pace for Garcia, this film boasts a decent cast and good script. Not your usual gangster fare, but well worth checking out.

User review rating: 4 July 02, 2010

OKAY.

User review rating: 5 July 01, 2010

Surprisingly funny and very wel acted. A sleeper of a movie.

User review rating: 2 June 30, 2010

mostly uninteresting except for Arkin who does steal the film once again.

User review rating: 1 June 30, 2010

not worth seeing. Depressing and boring

User review rating: 4 June 30, 2010

Nice change of pace film for Andy Garcia and Julianna Margulies. Alan Arkin almost steals the show, but not quite. Good story, although somewhat unbelievable, keeps entertaining throughout.

tone down the mouths in this movie ! headache

User review rating: 3 June 29, 2010

Fine acting and decent story line make this a film worth seeing. Andy Garcia is at his "non-gangster" best here, with a supporting cast that does not disappoint.
