Ultimately Mike Newell manages to make the film into something worthwhile.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
A hope-filled film portraying how the individual can make a difference and that humanity is capable of following its best instincts.
The film's style is as doggedly ordinary as its story is preposterous.
| Original Score: 2/5
Intermittently entertaining and embarrassing.
[Director Mike Newell] might have fared better had he employed a more whimsical touch.
| Original Score: 2/4
As amazingly bad as it is audacious, film will live forever in the hearts of connoisseurs of Hollywood's most memorably outrageous moments.
