Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: For a movie that probes the sensitive issue of living with reduced mental capacity, are the creators of Bambi the obvious choice? – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: A well-intentioned but ludicrous tale. – Rita Kempley, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Attaches a vastly overqualified company to a soggy, flamboyantly manipulative script. – Susan Stark, Detroit News, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Plays out in such a conventional manner that it feels like a TV movie of the week from the '70s. – Bill Muller, Arizona Republic, Jun 24, 2010
