The elements are in place but they don't add up to great drama in this well-meant effort to personalize the plight of illiterate people.

The ending, despite good intentions, is American cinema at its tackiest and most hollow.

It's as honest and direct and entertaining as the considerable talents of everyone involved can make it.

Here, in a movie less animated than a barrel of tree sloths, Ritt encourages stale performances and a pace as dull as more tree sloths.

McAlpine may be the movie's smartest contributor. He alone seems to realize that this pedantic project will soon be graduating into home-video or classroom use.
