[Seymour's] story demands a larger meaning, a sense of the poetic, than mere heart-tugging can provide, but Rosenfeld cannot provide it.
A hard, vibrant surface can't quite cover the mossy, skimpy center of this story.
One of those films that feel drunk on their own virtue.
[Rosenfeld] finds a way to convey messiness that gives King an honest and particular heartbeat.
Old-fashioned in good ways and bad.
It's more than a little tiresome to see executive producer Leguizamo put himself through the tortured contortions of his character.
Meanders with clumsy flashbacks, unexplored characters and relationships and a rushed, unsatisfying conclusion.
Filled less with performance than it is riddled with Oscar clips.
The fact is that given the talent involved, it should have been much better.
Every clichéd cinematic device ... is spread out before the audience like a bad road map.
The script isn't worth the quality of the work put in to it.
Some Latin boys go to hell while others just need a loving home.
An interesting movie! Good story plot. Great cast- John Leguizamo, Annabella Sciorra, Rosie Perez, and Marisa Tomei.
