Product Description

Today’s American families come in all shapes and sizes. The cookie cutter mold of man and wife and 2.5 kids is a thing of the past, as becomes quickly apparent in the bird’s eye view of the hit comedy, Modern Family, which takes an honest and often hilarious look at the composition and complexity of family life in 2009.

Modern Family stars Ed O’Neill as Jay, Julie Bowen as Claire, Ty Burrell as Phil, Sofia Vergara as Gloria, Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Mitchell, Eric Stonestreet as Cameron, Sarah Hyland as Haley, Nolan Gould as Luke, Ariel Winter as Alex and Rico Rodriguez as Manny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Family: Classic Comedy 23 Feb 2011
Format:DVD
I'm wary of comments like "this is the best comedy in years", but I will say this is one of the new comedies I've enjoyed most in recent years. It's not an outright mockumentary like The Office, but it's more in that direction that a straight sitcom like Friends.

The show centres around a retired father and his two grown up children and their families: Jay is the head of the family and married to a younger and hotter Colombian wife who has a child from her previous marriage; Claire is Jay's daughter and has three kids (popular, smart and stupid) and is married to a husband who tries too hard to be 'cool'; and Mitchell is Jay's gay son, who has recently adopted a baby daughter with his melodramatic husband Cameron.

The programme may be called Modern Family, and be focussed on an extreme version of the potential make-up of a family in the twenty-first century, but it riffs on all the dramas any family is likely to stumble upon across three generations, from kids growing up and parents trying to find the right balance between being friends with their children and being tough with them to divorce and remarriage.

I can't guarantee you'll love Modern Family as much as I do, but I'd urge you to do what you can to check out at least one episode as the whole season is of similar quality and style, so if you like one you'll most likely enjoy them all.

Really, this is one of the comedies I've most enjoyed in years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious - you have to love Modern Family 16 May 2011
By Allgri
Format:DVD
I came across this show by accident while watching the Oprah Winfrey show. Oprah's advice was, if you haven't seen it then you need to get the dvd now. Well I took her advice and ordered it the same day. I wasn't disappointed. I was hooked after the pilot and watched the whole series with my 13 year old son in just 2 days. We loved it. The characters are great fun and easy to relate to and I can't wait to order series 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars We love this! 11 Mar 2011
By FLB TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What can we say about Modern Family - it is hilarious and the whole family enjoys watching it. We watched it on Sky and then I bought the box set for my very sceptical father who has very particular tastes and he too thinks it is brilliant. The humour is spot on and subtle in places. i love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious 16 Jan 2011
Format:DVD
This is probably the most hilarious US comedy since Arrested Development. The interaction between the characters is amusing, witty and, often, side-splittingly funny. The cast is mostly comprised of relatively unknown actors (Ed O'Neill aside), but they all perform fantastically here. Without revealing too much, this is worth buying for the episode with Fizbo the clown alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best comedy series I've seen for years 13 April 2010
By I Like Cheese VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Modern Family is a mocumentary show (in a similar style to The Office: An American Workplace Seasons 1-3 [DVD] or Curb Your Enthusiasm: Complete HBO Seasons 1-6 [DVD]) created by Christopher Lloyd (Frasier - Series 1-11 - Complete [DVD] [1993]) and Steven Levitan (Just Shoot Me!: Seasons One and Two [DVD] [1998] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]) and it follows the families of Jay Pritchett (Ed O'Neill), his daughter Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen), and his son Mitchell Pritchett (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) who all live in Los Angeles. Claire is a homemaker mom in a traditional family, married to Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell); they have three children. Jay is married to a much younger woman, Gloria (Sofía Vergara), and is raising a pre-teen stepson. Mitchell and Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) are a gay couple who have adopted a Vietnamese baby, Lily. The families meet for family functions, around the neighborhood, and cross-family bonding.

I caught this show on the off-chance (luckily it was the pilot too) and was instantly hooked - it is hilarious! As well as being side-splittingly funny, the show is also very realistic with everyday scenarios that could (and do) happen to anyone and everyone. The chemistry and interaction between the actors' characters is spot-on and feels very genuine, so I truly admire how well each and every one of the cast perform in this fantastic new show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Staggeringly Funny 2 April 2010
By Martin Greenhead TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is not your average run-of-the-mill American sitcom. Watch the pilot first episode and see how the characters are interwoven, I won't spoil it but it will surprise you.

There are 3 distinct micro families: one an older man with a young, beautiful second wife, a gay couple with a child and a couple with 3 kids. The dad in this family is generally the focal point of the humour, trying to be hip and funny but failing miserably.

The comedy is helped by a similar documentary style to The Office, ie looks to camera and people caught doing stuff they shouldn't, plus some interviews with the "documentary makers".

The script is very tight written, allowing all the characters to shine. My favourite character is the dad who gets in to crazy situations (eg when a bike he has bought gets stolen and he ends up in a pretty, young neighbours house). It is also bang up to date (at least when it was aired, even including an Ipad episode days before the official release.

Classic stuff well worth a second and third look.

Highly recomended.
