[Tass] accents the easy bathos of David Parker's script.
December 14, 2001
This well-meaning film is really just another one-hanky slum fairy tale -- this time with an Aussie accent.
December 13, 2001
All over the map, not able to make up its mind whether it wants to be slapstick or a heart-wrenching drama.
June 19, 2001
Nowhere near as good as Tass and Parker's best film, the delightful Malcolm.

Ultimately undone by a less-than-credible, often cloying screenplay marked by underdeveloped characters and contrived situations.
May 21, 2001
An earnest attempt to fob off a sentimental and rather silly melodrama as a gritty piece of urban realism.
May 21, 2001
A crowd-charming contemporary fable with more than a touch of Dickens in its go-for-broke heart.
May 18, 2001
Provides satisfactions that must be balanced against its flaws.

It's far too easy to hold a grudge against Nadia Tass's stultifying Amy, which would set a new bar for mawkish exploitation of a child's suffering if its every situation and character weren't so laughably bogus.
May 8, 2001
Effectively combines the genres of musical, drama and comedy in a delightfully, family-friendly film.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
April 11, 2001
A moving and wise story.
February 21, 2001
Nothing to sing about.
February 21, 2001
Punchy, vital entertainment that gives mother and daughter equal importance and whose story unfolds in an engaging and imaginative context.
