Whaley has made a provocative, well-acted movie about infatuations that turn awkward, but he struggles with the ending.
Whaley aims high for this sort of material, but his film, sweet as it is, gets a little too precocious.
Whaley nicely calibrates this wistful dramedy's emotional quotient, never allowing sentiment to turn into sap. He also smartly dials down Reggie's initial precociousness to reveal a kid who's deep, resourceful and strangely sensible.
It's a bittersweet story that thins out toward the end as it turns too obviously sentimental, but it's still a nicely etched tale of the intersection of two unrelated lives.
Unsurprising given its laughably affected title, Like Sunday, Like Rain boasts what may be the most insufferably precocious protagonist in cinema history.
A playful tone and passable performances can't overcome an unremarkable premise and predictable plotting.
Like Sunday, Like Rain avoids both sentimentality and melodrama, though some might feel that it does so at the expense of story.
There's the ghost of a more interesting movie here.
The same listless scenes play over and over (park, restaurant, cello, etc.), with odd editing lurches between them.
A tender and heartfelt drama about the friendship between a 20-something nanny and her brainy 12-year-old charge.
Gossip Girl royalty Meester does opposite side of the tracks raw and real here, when it comes to emotional domestic violence, economic class divisions and youth financial struggles today. But the incessant background music is this film's own worst enemy.
If only Whaley...possessed any singularity of vision, perhaps this rote film would have had a similarly lasting effect.
