Pretty dull and very slow-paced...

This being a Hollywood movie, the realistic is soon left out on the curb as quickly as a Christmas tree on December 26, and as mournful-looking.

August 9, 2006
A nonsensical therapeutic melodrma about the shifting relationship between a mentally disturbed patient (badly acted by Spacey), who claims to be from another planet, and his problematic shrink (the reliable Jeff Bridges) who goes through menopause.

Looking Closer

It tries to frighten us into doing the right thing by declaring that there is no grace, no forgiveness, and no escape from our lives once we are done living.

Se Proft não pode levar o corpo consigo, por que desapareceu por três dias do hospício? E como sabe tanto? E por que utilizou o corpo de Robert? E para quê a subtrama envolvendo a família do médico? E por que estou perdendo tempo com esse filme?
| Original Score: 2/5

Bridges completely steals the show from the more lauded Spacey, who's simply on autopilot throughout.

Casting [Spacey and Bridges] against each other gives their scenes together a believability and intensity that comes directly out of their contrasting acting styles.

wants very badly to be liked and is willing to do just about anything to win your affection. This is the latest addition to the growing library of films that see mental illness not as a serious problem, but instead as a charming eccentricity.

As always, it takes an outsider--normally a dying woman or magical African-American --to convince the workaholic white guy he should spend more time with his family.

The most shameless psychological quackery to come out of Hollywood since Mumford.

More life-affirming, blank-stare weirdness from Kevin Spacey.

Although the romantic notion of presenting an irreverent soul at the heart of this film feels like a savvy commentary on the fragile human condition, K-Pax gets lost in its gawky chattiness.

Go with it ... and this good-looking movie is a moving and cathartic experience.

It professes to be good for viewers by kicking them below the knee, thereby testing their sensitivity reflexes.
