[Tass] accents the easy bathos of David Parker's script.

Top Critic

This well-meaning film is really just another one-hanky slum fairy tale -- this time with an Aussie accent.

Nowhere near as good as Tass and Parker's best film, the delightful Malcolm.

New York Post
Top Critic

Ultimately undone by a less-than-credible, often cloying screenplay marked by underdeveloped characters and contrived situations.

May 28, 2001
Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

A crowd-charming contemporary fable with more than a touch of Dickens in its go-for-broke heart.

Provides satisfactions that must be balanced against its flaws.

Audience Reviews for Amy

BEST MOVIE I've seen in a looong time. It definitely evoked a lot of emotion and some tears. Incredible acting by young De Roma and very interesting storyline.
