Director Mark Piznarski, who cut his teeth on My So Called Life, isn't able to to animate this perfunctory tear-jerker.

Here on Earth slides too easily into its sentimentality; the characters should have put up more of a struggle.

There are quite a few smelly things in the movie, but none of them can be left at the curb for the garbageman.

Michael Seitzman's screenplay is stultifyingly bad, wandering all over the place between generic, 'wrong -side- of -the- tracks' love triangles, lame romance, and emotional manipulation.

This is just the type of "dignified" tragedy Louis B. Mayer loved to churn out in the 1940s, where characters - even the unsavory ones - acted so noble they practically turned to statues before your eyes.

La dirección del filme cae más dentro de los parámetros de una miniserie o película hecha expresamente para la televisión que para la pantalla grande

Staring thoughtfully into the middle distance, Ms. Sobieski looks as if she is already contemplating better scripts.

While the positive aspects of not being a 14-year-old girl definitely beat the negative, there would be one short-term asset: It would probably make it a whole lot easier to appreciate Here On Earth.

Here on Earth does what it can to flatten the ascending careers of its attractive leads, yet Chris Klein and Leelee Sobieski probably will live to see another big-screen day.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

A film that wants to be both simultaneously slick and tender and misses both by a country mile.

If you haven't seen Klein's charming dodo-head athlete in Election or Sobieski's sympathetic hooker in Eyes Wide Shut, you won't know just how ignominiously both have fallen in Here on Earth.

Makes the similarly themed Love Story seem positively sophisticated by comparison.

Dramatically, the tragedy couldn't possibly be flatter.
