    A rambunctious joy.
  3. If you're after some family-friendly classic lit at the multiplex, here 'tis.
  4. It's an uneven film, but Dickens admirers shouldn't miss it.
  5. McGrath's version of Nicholas Nickleby cashes in on age-old show biz wisdom of "always leave 'em wanting more." It's a pity we're only allowed such a small nibble of one of Dickens' richest works.
  6. Many shallower movies these days seem too long, but this one is egregiously short.
  7. Watchable, certainly. It should have been so much more.

    It's a well acted, directed, and written film. It's too bad it's dull.
