...a plodding, consistently tedious waste of time...

Agrelo bumbles the mystery and borderline insanity of the material. What should be a bold depiction of a frazzled mind is instead a bewildering feature with a tenuous hold on human concerns.

Agrelo clumsily attempts to play jaunty larkiness against somber situations.

A soupy, entirely unconvincing grab bag of unmotivated behaviors and unearned emotional payoffs, An Invisible Sign feels like part of some woebegone, misguided stab at indie credibility and image adjustment for Jessica Alba.

Alba certainly tries her best at portraying not just a beauty but also a beautiful mind, yet very few things add up despite director Marilyn Agrelo's efforts.

Lukewarm dramedy is OK for teens but lacks power.

Cuter than a basket of puppies licking a litter of kittens, "An Invisible Sign" is an excruciatingly whimsical collision of adult themes and kid-friendly aesthetic.

The film is a puzzling mix of sentiment, black humor, and loads and loads of nonsensical behavior.

Simply put, An Invisible Sign is one of the worst movies we've seen in a very, very long time.

Strictly recommended for those who love their movies quirky, in monstrously large doses.

Offhandedly charming, if a bit labored in its eccentricity.

When an errant ax lands in Alba's thigh, the film goes from inept to kind of brilliantly bad; it's a teachable moment, though lessons learned may vary.

Jessica Alba gets plain-Jane crazy for An Invisible Sign, a syrupy A Beautiful Mind redux.
