    Tiresome new-age sentimentalism. Director and scriptwriter should shot. Spacey eating a raw banana was about the only interesting thing in the whole movie.

    The problem with Hollywood is not bad films. It's contently middle-of-the-road flicks like "K-Pax," a movie so smug it dares us to guit ourselves because we, unlike mental patients, do not SEE the world. Kevin Spcaey and Jeff Bridges, apparently aware the material is kooky, walk through.

  1. In short, this movie is exactly the kind of starry-eyed escapist fantasy that Dr. Powell suspects Prot of having. It's harmless enough, since we can be cured just by leaving the theater.
  2. A pleasant enough entertainment raised above its station by the quality of its acting.
  3. When Kevin Spacey takes center stage, our planet really does seem bright.
