It's indulgent, and more than once it's patently unbelievable, but Jordan knows how to make a movie, and it's often lovely to look at.

It's as coy and callow as you'd expect from a movie with a lead character nicknamed Kitten.

We're handed 36 separate chapters in the life of an androgynous sunbeam, but the whimsy is like a piece of caramel lodged between two of your back teeth: a sweet irritant.

Whimsical to a fault.

January 15, 2010
Rambling romance about a man truely in love with himself. Cilian Murphy has great talent, but not in this loser directed by Neil Jordan. My advice to Murphy...speak up and stop mumbling.

Despite its sometimes-delectable whimsy, Breakfast on Pluto ... winds up being only moderately satisfying.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
October 18, 2005
If an eventful life journey doesn't produce maturity or just simple insight, it doesn't feel terribly worth it.
December 1, 2005
Pluto's story is scattershot, though it occasionally resonates.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 22, 2005
The overall film lacks a sense of urgency, as if Patrick had all the time in the world to get where he's going.

Kitten [Murphy] is like the bouncing ball following a singalong... without adding any interpretation of her own.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
January 19, 2006
Murphy models his frocks comfortably enough, but "'Pluto" is draggy in other, disappointing ways.

Moderately entertaining fare.

November 15, 2005
So dense with dying fizzle and limp ideas that I began to wonder if Jordan has an evil twin, or if there are in fact several Neil Jordans, among them at least one literate stylist and one humor-handicapped village idiot.
November 16, 2005
The movie's drastic shifts in tone sabotage any attempt at sustained emotional engagement.

Ultimately, the film's detachment is its inspired idea and its inherent problem.
December 24, 2005
Breakfast on Pluto ambles along nicely, but feels as if it's never going to end.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
January 6, 2006
Like Kitten and everything else about Breakfast on Pluto, it's altogether too overstated and obvious, but at least it doesn't pretend to have any significance whatsoever.

The movie tries to be upbeat and find humorous ways to look at some very serious subject matter, but the fairy tale quality gets literally blown away.
