    Harry Plodder is a better name for this dud. Yes, the scenery is great but the script is beyond lazy. Why Daniel R. would pick this film to be in is beyond me. The director uses metaphors like a sledgehammer. If I saw the black horse in the film for another second I would have guessed it was a KT Turnstall video. This film should be in the dictionary under, misfire.

    More Sunday afternoon filler than cinema sensation, it’s a perfectly pleasant drama, but you’ll struggle to remember it the next day.

    If Daniel Radcliffe is hoping for an acting life after Harry Potter, he might want to be choosier than this cloying little Australian number.
  3. The filmmakers can't decide whether to trust the period innocence of the book (and play down their casting coup) or let the young man rip as a preteen-babe magnet... So December Boys splits the difference -- safely, dully.
