    While the film's mood is dreamy, dark, and gentle, it's also very slow and seldom leads to much of a intellectual or emotional payoff.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Peter Brunette
    Breaks no new ground and is tedious in the extreme.
    • 61 Metascore

    Wargnier is also a lousy storyteller who seems not to understand how to shape a narrative.

    Starts off brilliantly and then gradually -- actually, not so gradually -- peters out.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Peter Brunette
    Flat and thoroughly predictable piece of filmmaking.
    • 80 Metascore

    It's blatantly manipulative pairing of an adorable young boy and a selfish, honesty-challenged older woman [is] so calculating that I could never get emotionally involved.

    The new dud from Miramax's Dimension label.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 30 Peter Brunette
    With the possible exception of the action sequences and the occassionally imaginitive set design, it's awful.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 30 Peter Brunette
    The real problem is that it's not a very good Hollywood film, and its flaccid style, cardboard characters, and paint-by-the-numbers plot make watching it a chore.

    • 30 Peter Brunette
    It just doesn't work. Worse, it's downright offensive.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 30 Peter Brunette
    Never more than a dull, paint-by-numbers, overly literal transcription of the book.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Peter Brunette
    Simplistic and non-controversial, and thus is virtually guaranteed commercial success.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 30 Peter Brunette
    A dud. Neither sweet nor low-down enough by half.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 10 Peter Brunette
    This reprehensible and deeply unfunny film is obviously critic-proof.
