    It's a modest little fantasy. But it's also well made, unpretentious and refreshing.
  3. 60
    It's solid, if ultimately uninspired, July entertainment.
  4. 50
    Perfectly acceptable entertainment in the Mouse Factory's most familiar vein.

    Every time the movie seems poised to veer into watchability, however, Turteltaub is there, like a beat cop for the Fun Police, reminding us to laugh, sigh, or tear up.

    The comic screenplay...pivots on a toothless premise: Russ needs to get in touch with his inner child.
  7. 10
    The Kid's denouement resembles the nightmare that would have transpired had execs foisted a toupee and a happy ending on "12 Monkeys."

    This is a wonderful family movie with a lot of funny and warm moments. Bruce Willis and Spencer Breslin were fantastic.
