September 1, 2011
"Seven Days in Utopia" is flawed in so many ways -- the editing, writing, acting and Matthew Dean Russell's direction are uniformly weak -- that this well-intentioned film does its positive messages a disservice.

September 8, 2011
Supporting bits, like the saintly love interest played by Deborah Ann Woll, function more as archetypes than flesh-and-blood characters in a lively story.

Disgruntled teen golfer meets the Yoda of golf. Learns how golf is a metaphor for Buddhism.

Like a cliche tent at the State Fair, with lessons in oil painting, fly-fishing and church to help us all find our center.

Perfectly digestible and refreshingly G-rated, but it's often so confused, looking to make salient points on godly goodness when its best attributes are found on the fairway.

Half-hearted attempts to incorporate messages about God and faith don't go much farther than people pointing at a Bible.
