Watching Jesus Henry Christ sometimes feels like being trapped in a building with a faulty fire alarm.
May 24, 2012
If it all seems a tad to quirky and twee, that's the overwhelming flaw in director Lee's obvious and lightweight homage to director Wes Anderson.

Lee scratches the skin of family bonds until it bleeds.

Even for a surreal black comedy, "Jesus Henry Christ" requires massive suspension of disbelief.
May 3, 2012
So what is "Jesus Henry Christ" about?
May 3, 2012
It winds up just being annoying
July 24, 2019
A deplorably maligned effort that grovels unashamedly for attention, Jesus H. Christ, what were they all thinking?
January 9, 2014
Aggressively, painfully quirky...
July 20, 2012
Stylized comedy explores identity; adults drink and smoke.
July 3, 2012
Like "Little Miss Sunshine," this quirky indie comedy chugs along at an amiable pace, and with the same sort of dysfunctional family humor. It's not as successful as that film, but only because it's not as complex.

The film is an uneven mix of forced eccentricities and gradually annoying visual gimmicks that leave the characters almost completely detached from reality.

As precious as its prepubescent protagonist is precocious.

Making their screen debuts, young Spevack and Weinstein give the film's most natural performances and provide its little bit of warmth, but it seems time to petition Collette, a truly gifted actress, to take a long hiatus from playing bitter single moms.

The title alone invites you to cuss at this smug film about family tites, and you may do so the second you catch a whiff of the portentous first shot: a Wes Anderson put-on.
April 27, 2012
The cast is the spine of this film. Toni Collette and Michael Sheen give masterful performances as the hapless parents, and young Jason Spevack and Samantha Weinstein do the same as the brilliant, awkward children.
April 23, 2012
Its casually whimsical tone and esoteric asides come across less as emblematic of a genuinely original voice, and more like an amalgamation of Little Man Tate, Rocket Science, Running With Scissors and, of course, Rushmore.
April 21, 2012
Boldly colored and sharply designed, but there's little to take away from the movie besides a surface appreciation for certain production accomplishments.
April 19, 2012
Pleasant without being revelatory, underwhelming but not obnoxiously so, the film explores how we become who we are, whether by genetics or environment or some combination of the two.

Henry can finish a college application test in two minutes, yet Jesus Henry Christ doesn't know what to do with 90.
