Critic Reviews for Matching Jack

All Critics (13)

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.

August 20, 2010 | Full Review…

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

August 20, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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

August 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.
