There are cute moments and some very nice performances. All that's missing is a movie.

Neither funny, heart-warming nor star-powered enough to motivate the public to turn out in very large numbers.

It simply lacks the kind of audacity, confidence and substance that was the hallmark of Kasdan's best work in the '80s.

It's hard to tell what drew Kasdan to imagine Mumford - the town and the man - since the flimsily whimsical, rambling result never declares its intentions.

Mumford is such an instantly forgettable piece of work.

Mumford doesn't go very far or deep in detailing our impostor's road to redemption.

This pleasant romantic fantasy is slight enough to go straight to cable -- to network, even.

Simply a nice film. But that's not as much of a compliment as it sounds.

The film never manages to build into the clever comedy it initially seems destined to be.

I was never engaged in the film's story nor did I care about its main character.

This eccentric fairy tale with the feel of Our Town has a number of remarkable performances, chiefly those of Loren Dean.

Humongously entertaining.

Kasdan's new comedy, Mumford, is so wonderfully odd, even spiritual, that audiences won't be able to do anything but smile.

Director Lawrence Kasdan's Mumford blends likable characters with a humorous, gentle look at small town life.

This film is smart, but also entertaining -- made to go with popcorn, a cola and, well, Prozac.

It's a cozy film with fun characters, fine dialogue and an inspiringly warm and fuzzy theme.

It turns the tricks of psychology into duplicitous high play.

It's witty, entertaining, often funny as hell and even, at times, surprisingly wise about the human condition.
