Classic kids' fantasy in the spirit of Flight of the Navigator and ET.

I like to refer to it as "Donnie Darko" sans the violence if aimed towards kids...

Considering that parts are frightening, parts are nauseatingly sweet, and it's all confusing, it's not clear which demographic Mimzy is aiming for.

O'Neil and Wryn convey the occult and the mysterious with greater depth than you'd expect them to possess at their respective ages of 13 and 7.

For much of its scant 96 minutes Mimzy is rudderless in a muddle of metaphysical malarkey and time-travelling science fiction.

Mimsy seems watered down and limp, especially as it concludes.

...tries hard to be magical, charming, and endearing but remains mostly flat and lifeless.

A timely cautionary tale, even if its heartwarming message gets a little garbled along the way.

Incidentally, forget the toys, which seem to be upstaged by Wilson's underwear, reportedly the most expensive drawers ever in a movie.

Turgid twaddle.

Despite its attempt at being well-meaning family genre fare a la E.T., The Last Mimzy simply collapses under the considerable weight of its many bewildering plot elements.

It's a confused and confusing affair, though not without its felicitous moments.

Perhaps those futuristic folks could send another Mimzy back in time to a better filmmaker like Joe Dante, who can do a better film adaptation of Padgett's story and beat Shaye to the punch.

New Line powerbroker/director Robert Shaye has made a children's film for stoners, a trippy, psychedelic fable that belongs in the DVD section of New Age bookstores alongside the strangely similar What The Fuck Do We Know?
Full Review | Original Score: B

A low-key sci-fi that has an offbeat charm all its own.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Unlike E.T., Mimzy isn't wrinkly or strange or even very mobile, nothing that might frighten the All-American youngsters who discover her on a beach near Seattle.
