At the very least an emotionally honest film, but it would have been far more affecting if it felt more true to life.

With a relentless playlist of rock stand-bys, the film careers between jaunty and maudlin.

Excessivamente ansioso para provocar as lgrimas do espectador, o roteiro torna-se superficial e maniquesta, transformando o sofrimento de seus personagens em verdadeira tortura para o pblico.

Donnie Brighto is what they should have called this feeble, sucrose emotional drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal.
February 22, 2003
Well-acted by its impressive cast, but ultimately very slow to the point of being boring and unengaging -- still, it's a treat to see Hoffman onscreen again.

Cameron Crowe did not write or direct Moonlight Mile, but he may as well have, since the movie feels and looks and most of all sounds like his work. From my point of view, this is not a compliment...

The net is cast far too widely. The question begins to beat around in your head. "What does this movie want to be?"

I believe Silberling had the best intentions here, but he just doesn't have the restraint to fully realize them.

Jack Gyllenhaal's intelligent performance doesn't save this film from being a tidy pile of melodramatic mush, but it at least makes it watchable.

The movie was worth a suck as far as I was concerned.

While acknowledging the possibility of growth after tragedy, [it's] so comfortable with the positive that the would-be emotional moments are telegraphed and phony.

The movie is like a series of vague cliff notes, teasing a much greater story without actually capturing emotion or perspective.

The whole film is like the title: it sounds as poetic as all get out but doesn't really say anything.
October 13, 2002
both quirky and very serious, and it seems mired in its inability to decide exactly what it is

You watch for a whole hour before Moonlight Mile collapses into bathos. But when it collapses, it collapses hard.
October 4, 2002
The film isn't very likable.

A mix of tragedy and humor interests us in Moonlight Mile for a while, but interest turns to annoyance when we realize there's no substance to back it up.
October 4, 2002
Feels like one of those contrived, only-in -Hollywood productions where name actors deliver big performances created for the sole purpose of generating Oscar talk.
October 4, 2002
It's too quirky, too scripted, too ... well, like a movie.
October 4, 2002
However sincere and heartfelt its intent, Moonlight Mile remains very much a contraption.
