For all its state-of-the-art special effects, Always is essentially a remake of the 1943 Spencer Tracy-Irene Dunne fantasy vehicle A Guy Named Joe--minus the wartime context.

Although Always is filled with big, sentimental moments, it lacks the intimacy to make any of this very moving.
For all its Spielbergian action and production values, the film is painfully sappy and wastes its A-list cast by saddling them with a hamfisted script.
Whimsical and affecting enough, but certainly a lesser Spielberg film.
Boring supernatural romance. Tedius and obvious. Wait until the following year's Ghost.
A light, enjoyable piece of fluff with spectacular flying scenes and a dramatically flat story.

A touching, beautifully short romance
Spielberg sets his whimsical romance ray for stun ... and comes up with a solid double off the wall.
A rousing adventure story, a romantic comedy, and an affecting afterlife fantasy.
