The Odd Life of Timothy Green

Critics Consensus

It means well, but The Odd Life of Timothy Green is ultimately too cloyingly sentimental -- and thinly scripted -- to satisfy all but the least demanding viewers.

    If you want to read the review I wrote for this, go to letterboxd.com/HankIsDead514. I can no longer post long reviews on here and I'm not writing two separate reviews for the same movie.

    My friends encouraged me to see The Odd Life of Timothy Green telling me how heartfelt this was. And I was utterly disappointed. I am not a fan of Timothy, and the drama was dry and not so enchanting. The magic didn't work for me.

    A beautiful, emotional, and often unexpected movie for all ages.

    When I saw the previews of this movie, I honestly thought that it looked kind of silly. Well..I couldn't have been more wrong. This fantasy movie was just wonderful. It was sweet, funny, charming, and a complete all around wonderfully likeable family film. If this movie doesn't warm your heart, nothing will....
