This is a good holiday film for the family.

A faithful adaption of an excellent book delivered with a welcome gentle restraint.

Wonder is a sentimental family film. While it's not devoid of clichés, these are offset by solid performances and a winsome, uplifting story told with tenderness.

I don't want to say that if you didn't like Wonder, then you don't have a heart. But this is really one of those movies that can cheer anyone's day up.

The fragmented narrative providing several points of view of the same event helps to approach different sensations. [Full Review in Spanish]

This could easily have been a cloying and sappy film, but it is a testament to Chbosky's skill as a director and screenwriter that it isn't.

Wonder is one of those movies that's supposed to make you cry and feel good, but it lets you get there organically instead of being too heavy-handed.

Charming and eye-opening to how difficult it is for adolescents who are different feel as they go throughout their lives.

In the end, the film was just too vanilla with a plucky kid that was more self-absorbed than wonderful.

While there are certainly clichés on view, you just can't argue with such a feel-good movie and its mission to spread a little more kindness, tolerance and love.

[Wonder] is a heartfelt and thoughtful movie, a fantastic parable for any kid who has struggled with what it means to be different. The performances are spot-on, the sentiments are sincere and the emotions generated are genuine.

An entertaining, exciting film.

Wonder makes overt strides to cast with the kind of diversity warranted for a story set in modern-day New York City, but all leading roles remain white.

Wonder has some very high goals in mind, and while I don't think it reaches all of them, its efforts are admirable and make for an emotional but hopeful viewing experience.

There will be plenty of tears shed in the theaters across the country as Wonder is a tear-jerker that lays it on heavy early and often.

Stephen Chbosky's adaptation of R.J. Palacio's children's novel will likely provide all the desired biological responses that you're looking for without any pesky intellectual concerns.

Yes, it's sappy and schmaltzy, but I loved every damn minute of it.

[Wonder] may make the unforgivable mistake of ableist casting, but it doesn't make many others. Therefore, I'm willing to be charitable.

Wonder is nothing like the emotionally manipulative train wreck I was expecting, but for all the charm the film possesses, it can't help but feel formulaic - a tearjerker it's impossible to cry at due to how well worn the cliches it presents are.

Nearly two hours of earnest paint by numbers plot devices leading to more paint by numbers plot devices caused me to, well, Wonder, if it couldn't have benefitted from a little chaos and grit.
