About the Movie

Disney brings enchantment home with The Odd Life Of Timothy Green, an inspiring, magical story for the whole family starring Jennifer Garner. Cindy (Garner) and Jim Green are a happily married couple who can't wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. When young Timothy shows up on their doorstep one stormy night, Cindy and Jim — and their small town of Stanleyville — learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life's greatest gifts. From Academy Award®-nominated director/writer Peter Hedges (About A Boy, Best Adapted Screenplay, 2002; Dan In Real Life; What's Eating Gilbert Grape?) — and complete with engaging bonus features — it's a heartwarming celebration of family as only Disney can deliver.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Mostly, The Odd Life of Timothy Green feels contrived , if undeniably sweet. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Aug 15, 2012

Rotten: It's the sort of thing you'll either find enchanting or an excellent reason to reach for the Scotch. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Aug 15, 2012

Rotten: Someday we should hold a contest to see who's better at smiling through tears: Robin Williams or Jennifer Garner. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Aug 15, 2012

Rotten: [It] invites critical derision, and Mom always taught me it was rude to refuse an invitation. – Kyle Smith, New York Post, Aug 15, 2012

The Odd Life of Timothy Gireen

This was a beautiful movie, beautifully acted. I went to see it with my teenage daughter, and we were both filled with tears by the end of the movie - both tears of joy and sadness.

It touches your soul and your heart - anyone who has ever loved, anyone who has ever parented will be moved. Just beautiful!

The tomatometer got it completely wrong : )

A really beautiful story, well told

Think "Field of Dreams" if you want an idea of what type of movie this is and how it will make you feel.

A simpler story perhaps, but well worth renting for anyone who's ever had any kind of dream.

We are adults without children (by choice) and you don't need kids to enjoy this film...the message is true for everyone, "You're ready. You were always ready. Never give up."

How To

Ladies and Gentleman- The very first instruction manual that teaches us exactly how to be the very worst parents we can be. Granted, you'd have to try pretty hard to be as bad as these two were. Good thing the movies here to teach us their ways.
