November 16, 2001
A warm, fuzzy and funny duet between [Kevin] Spacey and [Jeff] Bridges.

November 11, 2001
K-Pax goes all too quickly k-put.
November 1, 2001
As a brainless laugh riot, it's as funny as a flu epidemic. As a drama, it's an unintentional Robin Williams vehicle sour beyond its shelf life.
October 30, 2001
The specter of Robin Williams looms large.
October 29, 2001
Ultimately, the movie may puzzle audiences more than entertain them.
October 27, 2001
Shows signs of intelligent life.

October 26, 2001
As a pop parable of heavenly reassurance and redemption, Ian Softley's K-PAX is probably the kind of entertainment the movie industry refers to when it promises gentler, feel-good fare in light of current anxieties.
October 26, 2001
A queasy amalgamation of Awakenings, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Starman.
October 26, 2001
Flawed script turns well-acted K-PAX into a near miss.
October 26, 2001
Spacey rings all the right emotional bells as well, and could probably score another Oscar for playing Prot.

October 26, 2001
A syrupy melange of psychobabble and extraterrestrial mystery, offering further proof that planet Hollywood is made of cheese, with lots of holes.
October 26, 2001
K-PAX virtually becomes a two-character film -- a mighty talky one with an utterly banal ending.

October 26, 2001
It's pure pleasure to witness Kevin Spacey commanding the screen, and Jeff Bridges ain't exactly a rank amateur.

October 26, 2001
Its conflict is so understated, and takes so long to engage us, that the film is as flat as a stretch of Interstate 70 east of Denver.
October 26, 2001
I admired how the movie tantalized us with possibilities...

October 26, 2001
Here [Spacey's] so good, and so compulsively watchable, that the producers never had to spend a dime on a spaceship.

October 25, 2001
Entertaining for so long it's a downer to sit through the dumbed-down finale.

It's hard to see how K-PAX could be made any better than it is.
October 25, 2001
K-PAX is clearly a showcase for Kevin Spacey, who has actually won two Oscars (including one for his supporting role in The Usual Suspects) and who really ought to know better.
October 25, 2001
A draggy, earnest exercise in pseudo-spiritual uplift, recycling romantic hokum about extraterrestrial life and mental illness with wide-eyed sincerity.

October 25, 2001
As billowy as a pillow.
October 25, 2001
Everything about K-PAX seems to have been manufactured at Have a Blessed Day, Inc.
October 25, 2001
If K-PAX's conclusion is a bit too glib, too pat for what it's trying to do, it's an honorable attempt to create a thoughtful entertainment, and it's got the kind of acting worth visiting from another planet to experience.

October 25, 2001
K-PAX never attains the soulful heights its makers obviously sought. But it's still worth a visit.
October 25, 2001
K-PAX succeeds most often when it isn't blinded by the light of its own cosmic message. Its creators have apparently decided to embrace that message, seizing the moment -- and full credit -- with both hands.
October 25, 2001
However heady the experience of Bridges' gravity and Spacey's otherworldliness, the film is a head-scratcher for anyone who would try to reconcile its narrative ambiguities.

October 25, 2001
Gloppy and touchy-feely.
October 25, 2001
I rather like the whole mystic- crystal-revelations aspect of K-PAX.

October 25, 2001
Inspirational and profoundly moving.
October 25, 2001
Spacey and Bridges are so good -- and so good together -- that they keep the options and explanations open right up to the movie's bittersweet end.

These looney tunes from Kevin Spacey have been heard before.

October 23, 2001
Manages to intrigue without overplotting and uplift without overmanipulating.
