The Odd Life of Timothy Green Reviews

Page 1 of 7
Eric D. Snider

Even allowing for a certain level of unreality in a movie intended as an allegory, The Odd Life of Timothy Green smells of contrivance and falseness.

Instead of wanting to turn over a new "leaf," I wound up OD-ing on sap.

The Sunday Age

As odd as the title suggests, this is a strange and dreadfully overwrought family yarn.

Not so much moving as stomach churning.

It looks and sounds like your average family feelgood movie, but everything else about it is just plain odd.

Full Review Source: SFX Magazine | Original Score: 2/5

April 10, 2013

A slice of retro whimsy, it's rooted to nothing in particular and is inoffensive in every way except its overwhelming blandness.

[A] painfully sentimental, would-be magical tale ...

The Odd Life of Timothy Green, finds Disney at an altogether new low, capped off by a cringeworthy dance sequence that will make you scream for Timothy to crawl back into his magical hole.

Timothy's magic is as modest as can be, and its aim is a bit off... [U]ndemanding, inoffensive, and instantly forgettable.

Daily Mail [UK]

This is a remarkably bonkers example of Hollywood schmaltz. It's so glossy and gooey, it makes Forrest Gump look like Fight Club.

Little White Lies

A gooey mess, but not an entirely dislikable one.

Daily Express

A bizarre parable about parenting, the picture is nicely acted and occasionally touching but the lugubrious story is both dull and preposterous.

The Odd Life Of Timothy Green made me shiver, like having a lizard crawl over your face when you're asleep.

Has ever a film battled more fruitlessly against the creepiness of its own premise than The Odd Life of Timothy Green?

Disney gone pathologically fey.

Tim Evans
Sky Movies

It's not afraid to deal with darker issues - that childhood isn't forever - and Adams plays it just the right side of mawkish while Hedges makes sure it's anything but a smooth ride.

Matthew Turner
ViewLondon

Relentlessly mawkish wish-fulfilment fantasy drama that fails to engage on any meaningful level, to the point where you end up feeling sorry for the actors.

The bittersweet mood pervades until the final frames when Hedges contrives a satisfying resolution that should leave a few lumps in throats.

This 
is wholesome whimsy, but only the very green can fail 
to spot where the plot is heading after the first leaf drops and the symbolism needs pruning.
