Audience Reviews for The Incredible Mrs. Ritchie

This film is a soft, yet inspirational tale, about a troubled boy, whose life is changed when he's forced to work for an elderly woman. Once again this is a tremendous film that was completely ignored, due to not being in the theaters, but it's still one hell of a story. The performances are honestly some of the best I've seen all year and while I don't really go for films like this, it really moved me. Gena Rowlands shows that the longer you've been doing this, the better you get. Kevin Zegers on the other hand shows just the opposite, that you don't have to be a legend to put on a great performance. This story is just so inspiring and unlike many other films, it's very real and believable. Overall, it was somewhat predictable, but in a way that you don't mind so much, because of how it is done. Mrs. Ritchie is fantastic and I'm thrilled that I gave it a shot.

Super Reviewer


*** (out of four) The great Gena Rowlands makes this modest and sweet little drama worth seeing. The film doesn't always hit its mark, but Ms. Rowlands does. A sixteen year old boy (Kevin Zegers) is forced to do community service for Mrs. Ritchie. He learns several important life lessons along the way.

This movie is special to me in the fact that there was a time in my life where a lady helped me out of a bad time in my life.
