The great performance comes from Davis who - not surprisingly - takes an increasing amount of Mumford's attention.

Mumford is a movie full of insightful moments, and some of them are even pure therapy.

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

Writer-director Kasdan has a nice way with his oddball crew.

Mumford is so carefully visualized in Lawrence Kasdan's new film that you'd sort of like to live there.

Kasdan's new comedy, Mumford, is so wonderfully odd, even spiritual, that audiences won't be able to do anything but smile.

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

This pleasant romantic fantasy is slight enough to go straight to cable -- to network, even.

It's witty, entertaining, often funny as hell and even, at times, surprisingly wise about the human condition.

This eccentric fairy tale with the feel of Our Town has a number of remarkable performances, chiefly those of Loren Dean.

The performances are uneven.
