All Critics (31) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (26) | Rotten (5)

  • For a seemingly innocuous project, there's substance here for adults to unpack with younger viewers, which is a boon.

    November 27, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A frothy fantasy about a boy and his bear that makes up for in style what it lacks in substance.

    March 25, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • There's a sequence about an hour in when "Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made" is briefly jolted from its hard-boiled slumber... More such scenes may have elevated it from simply being fodder for a streaming service.

    February 7, 2020 | Full Review…
  • There isn't enough in the way of good jokes or clever references... to make the film appealing, and the flatness of Timmy's delivery, which is supposed to scan as deadpan, doesn't contain enough nuances to make much of the humor land.

    February 6, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Sadly, Timmy himself proves oddly charmless, pathologically deluded, self-centred and heedless of the distress he causes others, not least his struggling single mother. We don't find out why he's like this, but the bear is amazing. Kids will love it.

  • Timmy Failure is a lovely collection of deadpan jokes.
