Basically a series of short vignettes about the everyday life of an ordinary Japanese family. The animation is very simple and sketchlike, but works well in context. I think if they had cut 20 minutes of the lesser scenes it could have been a very tight comedy, but it's still worth watching.

As much as I love Studio Ghibli, this movie isn't really my thing. The grandma and the adorable little girl are fun enough characters to make it worth one watch for the staunch Ghibli fanatic, but anybody else can probably skip it without missing much.

Simple and heartwarming slice-of-life montage, perhaps a little overlong but all the same very enjoyable. The animation is god damn amazing. The comic sketch style, with its rough lines and basic shapes, is pretty unique and completely gorgeous.

It takes some time to get used to the structure, but once your acclimatised there's lots here to enjoy even if it's a bit too long. The small narrated sections don't work particuarly well, but when the focus is on the family's dynamic this movie excels. There are moments of charm, slightness and wry whimsy, with a few genuine laugh out loud scenes. The animation is lovely also. It's not substantial or consistant enough to compete with Ghibli's finest, but is a solid addition to the collection.

Not much of substance going on here - I'd recommend this largely for the unique and interesting animation, and a few highly imaginative sequences. The vignette style means that if a joke doesn't work for you it won't be long until another comes along - but the humor is very gentle, tame, family circus style stuff, and it can't really hold up a film with not much of a developed plot.

Probably would work better as a selection of short films, but still cute and wryly funny.

Rather lovely. Admittedly it absolutely doesn't cope with being feature film length, but watched in a few shorter bursts I found it very enjoyable.

One of my least favorite Studio Ghibli releases. The first half of this loosely connected movie is a blast. It's a fun slightly whimsical look at contemporary Japanese family life. The second part while not horrible just seems to drag.

I don't know why anyone would make this a feature-length work. The insufferable tediousness of its everyday insights and occurences grates early on already, but making it an hour and forty minutes is just too, too much.

Very unusual work for Studio Ghibli and anime in general. Based on comic strip it retains that visual style and narrative format. These little stories are filled with positive attitude and joy of having a family in both good and bad times. Unlike most other Ghibli works it is not groundbreaking masterpiece, but the warmth it radiates makes it worthwhile and often fun experience.

Watchable, and mildly enjoyable, thanks to it's unique animation style, but I'm not sure what kind of audience would like it. It's too simplistic for adults and I can't imagine kids being anything but bored.
