The lead girl is great at keeping the story interesting and letting everything flow. This movie fills me with happiness even though it features much melancholy. Everyone in the movie is amazing. It is a heartwarming movie. Overall Rating:76
Because of Winn Dixie is a run-of-the-mill, cutesy little Disney-like adaptation with likable characters, a been-there-done-that plot, and whimsy, overly sentimental messages. It never really moves past average because of the lack of inspiration from the source material in the filmmaking process.
A bland adaptation of an almost bland novel. This is a movie that would play during ABC Family's Sunday movie special, and be shut off immediately if anyone with a sense of creativity was holding the remote.
It was a funny and enjoyable family comedy-drama movie. It had great cinematography, cast, characters, comedy, drama, music and a good storyline. It's one of the best family films ever made. I would recommend this movie to both children and adults.
One of those movies that improves upon multiple viewings. The first time I watched it, my reaction was less than impressed; it struck me as a little odd. The second time around though I appreciated it for its genuinely good mix of emotion. The film has depth, something rare in most of the films that have a child star. Anna Sophia Robb brings excellent character and expression to the character of Opal, and the story is pulled off without being hokey. Some great thoughts and feelings about human nature seen through the eyes of a child.
A surprisingly complex story present innocently in the guise of a fanily film Cicely Tyson was brilliant as Gloria and Annasophia Robb shines as Opal. The story of pain and loss affecting everyone is a beautifully told. Its really not justa kids film and its definitely not about the dog. really awesome.
