Movie Reviews

  • trying helplessly to navigate this are the actors, consistently boxed into heartfelt performances that are nonetheless tragically miscalculated
    Review rate : C- by Daniel Schindel [The Film Stage ]
  • the really sad thing is that this is a movie with some intriguing characters that has some real comic and dramatic potential, but all this gets lost in increasingly silly plot mechanics
    by Dan Callahan [The Wrap ]
  • it's proof of a filmmaker willing to think outside the box, or at least try to make an old one look new, even if the end result comes up short
    Review rate : C by Eric Kohn [Indiewire ]
  • it's not entirely clear whether you should be laughing, crying, or waving a white flag
    by Owen Gleiberman [Variety ]
  • it begins as a kid-genius family picture, then abruptly becomes a terminal-illness melodrama; it winds up a bizarro thriller in which deeply unlikely crimes are plotted from beyond the grave
    by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • in its pure misjudged ickiness, bad-acting ropiness, and its quirksy, smirksy passive-aggressive tweeness, this insidiously terrible film could hardly get any more skin-crawling
    1 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
