... a mixed bag, containing some interesting moment but filled with unrealized secondary characters.

Ultimately, the movie may puzzle audiences more than entertain them.

K-Pax often feels redundant and unsatisfying, like a cinematic version of one of those Reader's Digest condensed books.

The story doesn't work, the logic is dreadful, and no one I talked to understood what the ending meant.

...a sort of Cuckoo's-Nest-meets-My-Favorite-Martian that probably sounded good on paper...

The film is reasonably well acted, but soft and sappy.

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.

A queasy amalgamation of Awakenings, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Starman.

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.

The unlikely has happened. Kevin Spacey has worn out his welcome. What next?

I had hopes for "K-PAX" but was disappointed by the routine story that breaks no ground and derives from other...works.

Quick, somebody give Kevin Spacey a bad guy role before he becomes as bland as Harrison Ford!
