Neither funny, heart-warming nor star-powered enough to motivate the public to turn out in very large numbers.

Mumford may look okay on your television some dead afternoon, but it isn't a movie.

Mumford doesn't go very far or deep in detailing our impostor's road to redemption.

... it ends up being little more than a mellow tour of quirky characters that are better as representatives of different personality types than actual characters we believe in.

The film never manages to build into the clever comedy it initially seems destined to be.

Simple and sweet, but unforgivably trite.

I was never engaged in the film's story nor did I care about its main character.

An intellectually vacant and pointless excursion to a town that is almost frightening in its artificiality.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

A film without conviction, about a town full of people with problems without depth, aided by a guru without soul.

Not even the master mirthmaker in Kasdan can save Dean or Mumford from bouts of mediocrity.

Let's see, no stars, little action, but a fine little script. Hey, don't they call that a 'play?'
