Guys certainly shouldn't throw their dignity out of the window to go see it alone, but if their girlfriends are dragging them along, they might just enjoy it a lot more than expected.

Cynics will find the film mawkish, but the story-telling is clear and involving.

An adaptation that smooths out the sharp edges of Ben Sherwood's source novel, it's a decent enough vehicle to flaunt Efron's acting chops.

It's rare teenage audiences get the chance to clock a metaphysical mystery when they could be watching a vampire fight a werewolf for the hand of a sourpuss.

Efron continues to transition gracefully from teen heartthrob to leading man material. He proves his dramatic mettle with an emotionally nuanced performance. The kid can act.

The Age (Australia)
September 21, 2010
The film's thickly layered garnishes of Americana -- baseball, fishing, a coastal town that looks like it was designed by Norman Rockwell -- carries shades of Frank Capra and is proficiently directed by Burr Steers.
| Original Score: 3/5

Zac Efron continues to prove his worth as a leading man in the appropriately sappy supernatural drama Charlie St. Cloud.

In the darkened anonymity of the theatre, you'll be enjoying every sappy twist along the way.

There's a certain tenderness about the story that explores letting go and taking chances ... a film whose impact is greater than its storyline promises

In order to enjoy this film, you must: 1. Enjoy other fantasy-based movies such as 'Ghost,' 2. Be open-minded about the afterlife, and 3. Be entertained by beautiful landscapes.

Efron has real star presence and he can act, and the role fits into the dreamboat mode his fans expect.

Sentimental and ultimately entertaining, aimed at women, I thought I was going to die during the incredibly slow first hour, but it picked up during the last half hour.

For all of its obvious calculations, Charlie St. CLoud is sincere and effective enough in its intentions to win over at least a few cynical hearts.

Maybe it will inspire some people struggling at home to break through their fears and live some life. It's also about where dreamy broody guys come from, because Zac Efron really sells Charlie's sketchy behavior, but man is he still dreamy.

The vehicle may get a little jacked up along the way, but its passenger arrives in style: The kid's a star.

The plot may be a stretch, but the raw emotions are not and Efron is up for the task.
