More Info:
  • William Arnold

    Finally becomes a somber, sentimental and rather profound romantic fantasy that is more true to the spirit of the Golden Age of science-fiction writing than possibly any other movie of the '90s.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Tom Keogh

    Captivating an audience from the get-go and drawing our attention and emotions ever deeper into the layered mysteries of a dreamy fable. Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    More a meditation on the nature of life itself than anything else, and a welcome respite from Robin Williams, the emotion sponge.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    A fragmented, episodic feel and a conclusion that seems both remote and remote-controlled.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Jay Carr

    Few actors apart from Williams could bring it off.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    May wrestle with big ideas, but it does so through a succession of small emotional moments.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Kevin Thomas

    A mainstream holiday movie, complete with stupendous special effects, amazing make-up artistry and sumptuous production design.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Begins with promise, proceeds in fits and starts, and finally sinks into a cornball drone of greeting-card sentiment.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    Kids may yawn at the movie's dawdling pace.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Peter Stack

    Has a certain slow, mechanical quality.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Except for Williams, the sitcom-meets-sci-fi acting throughout the movie is strictly of television caliber.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Columbus' approach is intended to cloak such topics as mortality and human identity in the warm glow of greeting card sentiment, which renders the prescription palatable for mass consumption but hopelessly diluted.

    Variety Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Director Chris Columbus...seals this comedy in an impenetrable bubble of hollow humanism.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ken Fox

    The play for the heartstrings is so cold and calculated that the movie's sentimentality feels as synthetic as its hero, and the philosophy is simpleminded and lazy.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    The childish humor and sensationalistic effects undercut the movie's philosophical agenda.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Nicole Campos

    With this desperately eager-to-please fable based on a short story and novel by Isaac Asimov, director Chris Columbus clinches his berth as the master of shiny-happy message movies.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Jessica Winter

    Amid the complacent a bizarre reactionary bent.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Andy Klein

    It's not really a kids' film, nor it is particularly funny, by either design or execution. It is, rather, Columbus' latest attempt at a comically tinged tearjerker.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    A cold, protracted and unemotional affair.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Curtis Morgan

    Entertains but never quite engages.
