Go with it ... and this good-looking movie is a moving and cathartic experience.
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.
Top Critic
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 26, 2001
October 25, 2001
Entertaining for so long it's a downer to sit through the dumbed-down finale.
October 25, 2001
It's hard to see how K-PAX could be made any better than it is.
