Bringing Up Bobby Reviews

Film Threat

Bringing Up Bobby is strongly recommended for both young teens and adults. It is a film that will help all of us survive and move on, in the beautiful yet uncomfortable world of our own making.

Famke Janssen only rarely finds her way to the lowdown and lowlife world of the characters, and never and brings "Bobby" up to the level of pathos of "A Mother's Sacrifice" that she was aiming for in the first place.

... a mess filled with condescending stereotypes, unlikeable characters, earnest melodrama and references to old movies that are better.

Stumbles through scenes without a consistent tone, hoping to shape something meaningful out of its display of misguided parenting. Janssen just doesn't have the vision to achieve it.

[Its] downfall was ensured by a leading lady who will always be more credible chasing zombies than the American dream.

Actress Famke Janssen wrote and directed this half-spiky, A-for-effort dramedy about a grifter mom struggling to raise her preteen son on the road.

Milla Jovovich delivers an over-the-top peformance in this melodramatic tale of an immigrant con artist and her juvenile delinquent son.

Bringing Up Bobby centers around a mugging performance by Jovovich, who can't ground the film's attempts to tie together sentiments from Paper Moon and Miss Saigon.

'"Bringing Up Bobby" is hardly an auspicious debut for Janssen as a director, but, at the same time, there's enough there to suggest that a next attempt would be worthy of investigation...

Ms. Jovovich displays such a keen awareness of her strengths that she brings out magical elements I never believed possible.

The script, by first-time director Famke Janssen, condescends to the heartland, and minor roles collapse to stereotype.

Just an extended dramatization of the 1980s anti-drug PSA that memorably cautioned "I learned it by watching you!"
