Critic Reviews for Matching Jack
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.
Having begun as a well-meaning but uneven mix of medical melodrama and fraught love story with whimsical accessories, it finally locates its heartbeat.
The very moments that the film goes wilfully off-topic prove to be its undoing.
Audience Reviews for Matching Jack
Tear jerker romance involving childhood leukemia, infidelity, and an Irish sailor in Australia. It would never have worked but for the casting of Nesbitt.
Not matching jack but matching parents maybe... Our children are going to die so lets make love and pretend we're happy for a while... bullshit bullshit ! But the father and son relationship is worth seeing. Touring the hospital with boat shaped bed...that was a really touching scene.
