Sigourney Weaver is impeccable as a distraught mother who resorts to pot to barricade her emotions in writer/director Dan Harris' diamond-sharp treatise on American family dysfunction that makes "The Ice Storm" look like a walk in the park.

Cinema em Cena

Dan Harris e suas criações habitam um universo repleto de incidentes absolutamente artificiais e de clichês risíveis.

It's unusual and faintly disturbing to see Jeff Daniels play such an unlikeable character.

Especially forceful performances make it well worth watching, even if it becomes a bit too much at times.

A "personal" sort of story that might just hit you like a ton of bricks. Me? Not so much.

Sigourney Weaver stands out as the heart of Imaginary Heroes, a depiction of a troubled suburban family.

Not a great movie, by any means, but it is an always-interesting one - even when it veers off the rails.

Sigourney Weaver is magnificent in Imaginary Heroes ...

Harris cannot justify this family of misfits contrived for the screen.

Writer-director Dan Harris' script is so disjointed that Heroes rambles for most of its nearly two-hours.

With that much baggage, Tim doesn't need a loving family. He needs a Smarte Carte.

Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)

Stumbling between failed comedy and stilted drama, Imaginary Heroes never finds a convincing tone.

Writer-director Dan Harris ... runs Tim and the Travises through the dysfunctional-family checklist.

Although she comes across as bordering on insufferable, we are expected to understand that Sandy is the touchstone of honesty in the film because, like other American films of the Sundance variety, eccentricity signifies emotional authenticity.

If the film had been about Weaver rather than her family, Harris might have scripted an ending that represented a risky individual choice instead of a communal retreat.

Austin Chronicle

Has a third act that consists almost entirely of skeletons tumbling out of the closet, but Weaver's and Hirsch's flawless performances elevate the film above and beyond the ranks of 'Ordinary People' pastiches, and in the end it stands on its own merits.

Failed ambition is still ambition. Imaginary Heroes may overreach, but it challenges us as it does. That's heroic in any filmmaker.
