Agrelo clumsily attempts to play jaunty larkiness against somber situations.

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.

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.

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.
