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

As precious as its prepubescent protagonist is precocious.

It winds up just being annoying
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
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 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.

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.

So what is "Jesus Henry Christ" about?

Even for a surreal black comedy, "Jesus Henry Christ" requires massive suspension of disbelief.

Lee scratches the skin of family bonds until it bleeds.

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.

Aggressively, painfully quirky...
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
April 29, 2011
Mildly nutty comedy about a teen prodigy suffers from an underwritten script and overstylized gags.
April 30, 2012
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.

May 7, 2012
The film is an uneven mix of forced eccentricities and gradually annoying visual gimmicks that leave the characters almost completely detached from reality.
May 25, 2012
Watching Jesus Henry Christ sometimes feels like being trapped in a building with a faulty fire alarm.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
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.

July 20, 2012
Stylized comedy explores identity; adults drink and smoke.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 10, 2011
Too deliberately eccentric to attain quite the level of wigginess it aspires to, Jesus Henry Christ does feature some standout perfs and a refreshingly unconventional approach to telling its slight story.
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.
