  1. 75
    This feel-good motion picture is intelligently written and expertly directed.
  2. Within the limits and cliches of utterly predictable material, Mr. Coppola is still finally able to make this one from the heart.
  3. it's a synthetic, rather drab movie, one that seems linked less to experience, or even to fantasy, than to other movies - "Big," of course, and also "E.T.," "Mask," and "Phenomenon."
  4. 40
    When a master dedicates his genius to the production of schmaltz, it's not a pretty sight.
  5. 38
    [Robin Williams] has been ill-served by a screenplay that isn't curious about what his life would really be like.
  6. Jack is more depressing than the weight of its demerits because of the quality of the work both these men have done before.
  7. A listless family comedy and bland morality primer.
