Critic Reviews for Matching Jack

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (1)

Having begun as a well-meaning but uneven mix of medical melodrama and fraught love story with whimsical accessories, it finally locates its heartbeat.

Beautifully played and powerfully moving, despite the sugary clichés.

Lynne Renew and David Parker's script is based on a wonderful premise, but the resulting film is uneven, straddling adult drama and family-friendly tear-jerker without doing either well.

It's melodrama, but powerful, with insights into the way cancer changes lives. I howled. Take Kleenex.

The very moments that the film goes wilfully off-topic prove to be its undoing.

Aug 20, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Matching Jack has a squirmy kind of emotional truth to it. It's funny, but it's not a comedy.
