Think Ice Storm and Donnie Darko as the American Dream goes terribly awry in the bosom of a suburban family.

The fractured, non-linear narrative fires plenty of red herrings and there are plenty of pointless characters with melodramatic side plots that go nowhere.

Sigourney Weaver is impeccable as a distraught mother who resorts to pot to barricade her emotions in writer/director Dan Harris' diamond-sharp treatise on American family dysfunction that makes "The Ice Storm" look like a walk in the park.

Sigourney Weaver is magnificent in Imaginary Heroes ...

Harris cannot justify this family of misfits contrived for the screen.
April 8, 2005
Writer-director Dan Harris' script is so disjointed that Heroes rambles for most of its nearly two-hours.

With that much baggage, Tim doesn't need a loving family. He needs a Smarte Carte.
April 1, 2005
Stumbling between failed comedy and stilted drama, Imaginary Heroes never finds a convincing tone.

Writer-director Dan Harris ... runs Tim and the Travises through the dysfunctional-family checklist.

Sigourney Weaver gives a terrific performance in this impressive film.
