It's supposed to be magical and charming, of course, but it's more annoying than engaging.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

From director and writer Peter Hedges comes a wonderful tale about the power of intention, being careful of what you wish for, self-acceptance, love, loss, and new beginnings.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Likely to please younger audiences who will find the simple, fairy story style arc comfortingly familiar and the central protagonist quirkily relatable.

Even allowing for a certain level of unreality in a movie intended as an allegory, The Odd Life of Timothy Green smells of contrivance and falseness.

Instead of wanting to turn over a new "leaf," I wound up OD-ing on sap.

As odd as the title suggests, this is a strange and dreadfully overwrought family yarn.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Not so much moving as stomach churning.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 10, 2013
It looks and sounds like your average family feelgood movie, but everything else about it is just plain odd.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 8, 2013
A slice of retro whimsy, it's rooted to nothing in particular and is inoffensive in every way except its overwhelming blandness.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 8, 2013
[A] painfully sentimental, would-be magical tale ...
April 5, 2013
The Odd Life of Timothy Green, finds Disney at an altogether new low, capped off by a cringeworthy dance sequence that will make you scream for Timothy to crawl back into his magical hole.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 5, 2013
Timothy's magic is as modest as can be, and its aim is a bit off... [U]ndemanding, inoffensive, and instantly forgettable.
April 4, 2013
This is a remarkably bonkers example of Hollywood schmaltz. It's so glossy and gooey, it makes Forrest Gump look like Fight Club.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 4, 2013
A gooey mess, but not an entirely dislikable one.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 4, 2013
A bizarre parable about parenting, the picture is nicely acted and occasionally touching but the lugubrious story is both dull and preposterous.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The Odd Life Of Timothy Green made me shiver, like having a lizard crawl over your face when you're asleep.

Has ever a film battled more fruitlessly against the creepiness of its own premise than The Odd Life of Timothy Green?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Disney gone pathologically fey.

April 4, 2013
It's not afraid to deal with darker issues - that childhood isn't forever - and Adams plays it just the right side of mawkish while Hedges makes sure it's anything but a smooth ride.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 4, 2013
Relentlessly mawkish wish-fulfilment fantasy drama that fails to engage on any meaningful level, to the point where you end up feeling sorry for the actors.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
