Collateral Beauty isn't perfect, but its heart is in the right place. And with this cast, it's well worth a look.

Director David Frankel's Collateral Beauty tackles a truly difficult subject, the death of a child, and handles it sensitively and seriously.

Kudos to Loeb and his team for daring to be creative and for contributing a positive story to the cinematic universe.

Collateral Beauty really is a nice, innocuous little film designed for those in the mood for an undemanding weepie...Yet, once again we have an example of an unpresuming, mid-range movie becoming a lightning rod for inexplicable online hatred.

A film so bad and clumsy that seems a kind of self-help class. [Full review in Spanish]

At any other time of year Collateral Beauty's appeal would be lost, but in the midst of the holiday season, its guilty pleasure viewing if you want to laugh, cry and generally feel.

This may not be a new Christmas classic, but give it a little time and love, and it won't be the death of you.

I still kinda dig this weird, embarrassing movie. It's got good actors in it -- everyone is great, really -- it looks real nice, and I'm brave enough to admit that, yes, reader, I got a little teary in parts.

Collateral Beauty isn't exactly a good movie. As noted, it's overly manipulative, and it also has several glaring continuity problems. At the same time, this tragic tale truly does offer catharsis and hope.

Cast is best part of sentimental drama about grief.

Heartstrings resist such clearly calculated tugging; good tearjerkers tend to be a bit more messy. Still, it's a diverting-enough anecdote, well-acted by an aristocratic cast

It's hard to predict if audiences will want to take such an emotional ride at the holidays, but the supporting performances and overall message make it a worthwhile one.

"Collateral Beauty" is based on a premise so preposterous that the film shouldn't work. But the illusion of credibility is sustained just well enough to keep things from falling apart.

...a movie best suited for those not afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves.

Although it continuously slips into being overly sentimental, it's hard not to be pulled in by the film's tale of love, loss and the time it takes to deal with both.

Most movies today remind us dates in high school are hard to come by, superheroes can beat up aliens, or serial killers are scary dudes. A movie that wisely contemplates how to deal with profound sadness deserves our respect for that alone.
