    Some bad movies should carry a leper's bell to warn off ticket buyers. Such a contagion is Charlie St. Cloud, a load of mawkish swill starring Zac Efron (bereft of the talent he showed in "Me and Orson Welles"). show more

    A delicate film - not flimsy, but fragile - that holds together on the strength of Efron's physical presence and performance. show more

    The movie tries to capture the crushing weight of loss, but between the insipid pop tunes and the repetitive shots cutting away to a lighthouse on a scenic outcropping, it feels more like a film version of a condolence card. show more

    I thought it was a great movie! Turned it on by mistake and could not stop watching it...even though it was late!

    There are sure to be negative comments on the emotional role Zac plays ... but he has shown he is a True Actor. I vote 85% of the movie is good plot and acting. Difficult roles for all concerned and a bit ethereal. A definite worth seeing movie. Thanks for the effort Zac - I'll look forward to others you'll do.
