From Amazon.co.uk

Without question, they key reason to watch The Oranges is its utterly sublime cast. Led by Hugh Laurie, in his first big screen role post-House, the ensemble also features the brilliant Allison Janney, and the continually underrated Catherine Keener. Perhaps inevitably, this excellent company of acting talent doesn't quite get enough to work with, but The Oranges remains a film well worth seeking out.

It's a comedy drama at heart, telling the story of best friends and neighbours living in the midst of domestic suburbia. Things get complicated, in ways we're not going to spoil here, and The Oranges, with a fair few welcome quirks, tells a tale that, in truth, cinema has addressed before. Laurie in particularly is in excellent form though, in a role that, not for the first time in his career, has undertones of darkness to it.

It's a shame that the disc release doesn't feature more in the way of extra features, yet this is an off-radar, low-budget enterprise that warrants both time and attention. Funny, interesting and just a little bit undercooked, its cracks are more than compensated for by that aforementioned cast, who are a continual delight to spend time in the company with. –Jon Foster

5.0 out of 5 stars Orange you glad this has gone to pre-order?! 12 Mar 2013
Format:DVD
This is a great quirky comedy in the mould of Juno, Extract etc. Hugh Laurie is on top form as the bored middle-aged family man who begins an unlikely relationship with his best friend's teenage daughter, with darkly funny repurcussions for all concerned! Highly recommended 5/5

4.0 out of 5 stars IT'S NOT ABOUT BEING HAPPY 12 May 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is another feel good, feel awkward, sometimes humorous indie. The beginning of the film establishes the characters of the six main players. Two families are best friends. They do everything together, but not all is well. David Walling (Hugh Laurie) has been sleeping on the couch. His daughter Vanessa (Alia Shawkat) does some first person narration. Growing up she was best friends with Nina (Leighton Meester) who is part of the second family. Unlike Vanessa, Nina is a free spirit and Vanessa sees her as the antagonist.

Nina breaks up with her boyfriend and comes home for Thanksgiving after two years. The parents hope to fix her up with Toby Walling (Adam Brody), but Nina has suddenly developed a taste for older men, older married men who sleep on the couch. They are quickly discovered and the film goes into a mild disaster mode with crude comments from Nina's mom (Allison Janney) and snarky remarks from the hurt Vanessa.

The film had some funny parts, but for the most part it simply makes you smile at the awkward situation. The characters were well developed. The dialouge was decent. It has appeal and is worth a view, at least once. Leighton Meester did a great job.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity. Some crude sex talk.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hugh is an actor of extremes 1 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While remaining watchable, The Oranges is an underwhelming movie which wastes the huge talents of Hugh Laurie as a character who is so nice and middle aged man next door that I half expected to see Stuart Little pop up from his pocket.
I expect he was trying to do something different than his irascible quick witted House character and he does this in a competent manner but the whole thing is just an unconvincing light weight look at a mid life crisis. The acting is OK but a disappointing next move for an actor who is so compelling in more extreme roles whether it be George in Blackadder or the creepy spymaster in Spooks.
If Hugh gets tired of playing with playing blues, I hope he finds a great crazy character to get his teeth into as is his forte! Meanwhile this movie is worth a watch but don't expect another masterpiece.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Oranges - An easy-going film. 3 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love both Hugh Laurie and Allison Janney so this was an obvious choice. A nice sympathetic film to watch on a rainy afternoon.
Just a slice of life that most ordinary people occasionally have to deal with. In this case dealt with by true professionals.
