Brilliant. One of the finest films I have ever seen. Should be on everyone's best list.

I love watching this movie over and over again. I love romantic movies. The story line is simple enough. But, it was the music that really made this movie! The scoring of a movie can make or break it. Will they have an August Rush II???? If they do, they better have a great story line and wonderful music.

Thinly disguised remake of Oliver Twist. HOW WONDERFUL. Robin Williams is threatening in the 'Fagin' role, Jonathan Ryhs Meyers is ************************** a fairy tale. I loved how it 'tool me away'.

I love this movie. The quirky little smile on the main character's face is absolutely charming. I loved it and could watch it again and again. Any time the critics hate a movie, I usually find they're awesome. I NEVER listen to the critics.
