Critic Reviews for Tuck Everlasting

All Critics (119) | Top Critics (30)

Harks back to a time when movies had more to do with imagination than market research.

Nov 5, 2002 | Rating: B+

Those with the patience to submit to its low-energy charms may find their time well spent.

Any movie that signals the menace of a potential lynching by zooming its camera through the loop of a gallows noose cannot claim subtlety, but director Jay Russell never lets the swirling emotions of Tuck become too drippy.

A successful merger of the whimsical and the weird.

When Alexis is dancing for Jesse it looks like he's masturbating. I'm serious, watch it again.

'loosely' based on the children's book...I've come to adore. So, it's different...granted. But still really interesting. Philosophical...even.
