The charm of it all wins us over, and while we watch the tired old twists and turns, we smile anyway.

In a sane world, this utterly charming, sweet little fantasy of a movie would boost Rhys Ifans to stardom.

September 24, 2004
One randomly recruited audience member directly behind me -- let's call him the Shouter -- exclaimed, 'That's tight!'
September 17, 2004
The easygoing humor and uplifting messages -- that it's never too late to turn your life around -- are welcome, especially in the September movie doldrums.

As for the charm factor, I can't think of any screen couple this year with more of such an elusive quality than Ms. Otto and Mr. Ifans.
September 5, 2004
Unlike its main character, it never quite achives lift-off, but it is a pleasant little diversion with some very sweet moments.

It's pure romantic fantasy, almost too cute and naively innocent for its own good.

August 27, 2004
A delightful, well-acted illustration of an unhappy person's breakout from his mundane existence.

You'll probably forget Danny Deckchair a few minutes after leaving the theater, but it passes the time well enough while you're there.

What finally prevents Danny Deckchair from floating away completely is Balsmeyer's seemingly sincere admiration for those Trudy dismisses as 'the little people,' rendered here with as much respect as eccentricity.

A (literally) lighter-than-air story, full of goofs and creeps and fools and silliness, it manages to delight without simpering, make points without lecturing and break hearts and mend them again without turning you weepy.
August 27, 2004
This has a lighter touch than most Hollywood feel-good movies, and a tad more heart.
| Original Score: 3/4
