And yet.... If you can turn off the voices that murmur all the reasons there are to dislike this film, you will find that it actually works as entertainment.

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

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.

Quirky sci-fi adventure best for fantasy lovers.

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.

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.
