The Odd Life of Timothy Green Reviews

It has quirky charm and a tender heart, but the treacly sentiment may become wearisome.

Hedges usually strikes a better balance of darkness and light, but with this film, reveals feet of clay.

Odd is exactly the right word for this curious experience.

An outdated oddity.

For some, the message of "The Odd Life of Timothy Green" will be rewarding enough. I wanted more complexity, and less melodrama and movie-of-the-week messaging.

Disney-schmaltz, family-values hokum, and dopey clichés ('anything's possible,' 'different's OK,' etc.), syrup over the intriguing allegory. If only the movie had plunged deeper into its well of meaning and stopped jerking at our heartstrings.

Sappy family drama never overcomes its peculiar fantasy premise.

A love letter to helicopter parents this is a ridiculous, if well-meaning, film that needs a good pruning.

What the movie needs is an element of fun -- or at least childlike wonder -- to balance out the foreboding gloom that hangs over every interaction.

If it's not quite as deep as it would like, Timothy Green does what it sets out to do better than most.

"The Odd Life of Timothy Green" is not your garden-variety feel-good kids' film, but it's a quirky, tender and mature ode to parenting that is equally entertaining for adults and children.

Positive stories like this one are much needed in these hard economic times, just as they were needed in the Great Depression during the 1930s.

[It] gets a tad bittersweet in its finale, but it's Disney schmaltz of the highest order. By the end, the movie grows on you.

If there were an Academy Award for the film that gave the greatest effort to simply like it, The Odd Life of Timothy Green would be unbeatable.

The movie has some truly lovely moments, achieved through total open-heartedness, and then some awfully awkward ones, arrived at through the same means.

The film is schmaltzy and very saccharine, so sweet it'll give you a toothache.
