Dr. Bird's Advice for Sad Poets Reviews

  • Apr 06, 2021

    It's too quirky for its own good...trying to weave finding his sister in with a new love interest and advice from a bird - this movie is all over the place. What could be touching is so schmaltzy that it loses its bite altogether.

    Nothing special. Zumann's forced attempt to be quirky makes you roll your eyes and doesn't make justice into expose the actual feelings of someone with serious mental health. There are bunch of jokes without good sense of comedy and almost 2 hours of a plot that actually isn't explored. The main couple has no chemistry at all, which is ironic since the whole family drama, seriousness of mental health which should be more developed and the focus of the movie is putting aside to put under spotlight a romantic teenage drama that cannot even feel real. This film tries to bring too many things happening at once, hence loosing its essence. Do yourself a favor by watching another movie.

    This movie is very bad in so many levels. Is like a meal with too many ingredients that at first looks nice, but in the end just have a bad taste in your mouth. Most people just watch this movie because the actor who plays Gilbert from Anne with an E is in it and therefore are too bias to actually give a realistic feedback.

    Captivating. A peek into a world not spoken enough about.

    This movie is a joke. Too long to the point it become boring, because the real plot is never explored until the last minute, failed attempts of comedy, exaggerated and ridiculous special effects that try to exemplify the intensity of the characters feelings, but turn up looking like something Disney's movies do to not show or say it out loud if a character is turned on. The acting of Lucas Zumann is forced and mediocre and this movie is not a complete failure only because Taylor Russell is the anchor for this ship not sink. Is a generic ordinary coming of age movie that like many others released few years ago try to romanticize mental illness, but not even this is well accomplished because instead of exploring more in depth the problematic family or the anxiety problem of the main character, just decide to focus on the "romantic" relationship loosing focus of the main story. But hey, as long as Zumann with his pretty face still reminds his fans of Gilbert from Anne with an E why give importance to the content of the movie right? Is a mess. Don't waste your time.

    A magical, visually stunning, touching film. One of the most original I've ever seen.

    Exceptional acting, great script and a unique but important look at youth and mental health

    The film brought humor to serious subject matter...mental health. The performance of Lucas Zumann, as James, was never over the top. He was charmingly comedic and showed a full range of emotions expressing what it was like to struggle with anxiety and a dysfunctional family, as well as typical teenage angst and first love.
