I wonder who the movie was made for.

The film pursues its sensitive material with the appropriate degree of care, but the direction by M. Night Shyamalan turns potentially provocative moments into dull eddies of melodrama.

For those who want to see something soft, without a bite to it, this is the one to chew on.

Beneath its suffocating, smug sentimentality, you have to look hard to uncover a single moment of truth and genuine feeling.

A pretentious, preachy first movie from an arguably great filmmaker.

A meandering script, written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, and the candy coating it's wrapped in, undermine its effectiveness.

Done well, it could have been a gem among the wasteland of modern children's cinema. Unfortunately, it isn't.

The fact is, just too many of the characters and plot points are right out of the stock room: the obligatory fat kid; the obligatory bully; the obligatory kid whose parents can't really afford Catholic school tuition ...

Film Journal International

Dramatically unconvincing most of the way through, and even runs into logical inconsistencies where its main character's quest for God is concerned.

Just what I need, a film that embodies two of my worst phobias in one role: Rosie O'Donnell as a nun.

Children, too, will be bored to tears navigating through some of the talky spiritual gunk.

What better place to look for God than in a Catholic school, right?

Its rather facile treatment of its serious themes will leave older audiences less than satisfied.
