An entertaining diversion and if you want a light film to just sit back and relax to, then this might just be your movie.

It has a lot of heart and offers enough amusing situations and lines to keep most viewers happy, at least the female ones.

The movie makes smart use of the small-screen big-charm appeal of former Home Improvement star Tim Allen.
Joe Baltake
Sacramento Bee

One of the best family films around.

Joe Somebody is a family film that goes for the laughs but not at the expense of demonstrating some important life lessons.

Joe Somebody gives Allen a piping chance to play it sensitive, sentient and, for all the right reasons, lovable. He takes that chance and does a first-rate job.

Joe Somebody sends audiences home happy but also with an awareness that happy endings have to be earned in real life as on the screen.

There are things to relish here.
George Meyer
Orlando Weekly
December 21, 2001
Makes the most of an infusion of top tube talent and network-style attributes.

It's terribly predictable, like turkey on Thanksgiving Day. But that doesn't mean you don't love it.
Eric Lurio
Greenwich Village Gazette
December 20, 2001
It's really not Allen's best work, but is for the most part watchable and might even be worth a bargain matinee.
Lawrence Toppman
Charlotte Observer
December 20, 2001
It's like the perennial Christmas fruitcake -- nobody's first choice for a dessert, but a ritual we all observe now and again.
Ross Anthony
Hollywood Report Card
December 20, 2001
Extremely light, but pleasant. Rarely a big laugh, but a friendly supply of chuckles
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Phantom Tollbooth

It's an enjoyable romp that avoids the ridiculous for the surprisingly understated.
Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

Talented actors are wasted on bad script.
