Feels dreadfully slow and often inert.

The very strong performances in this low-budget film deserve a better narrative structure to strut their stuff.

A better venue for The Visit might be PBS or HBO, where its method-y intimacy would feel less forced.

Too bad it's swamped by good intentions.

Overloaded with extra characters, tangled story lines, dance numbers, fantasies and flashbacks.

Some of the fantasy sequences play like a Hallmark Hall of Fame production, as does the overly sentimental ending.
