    So what's wrong with Joshua? Two things: The audience is ahead of the movie, and the movie never catches up. show more

    Terrifically sneaky psychological thriller, which takes great pleasure in watching carefully constructed family values come tumbling down. show more

    I am starting to get really sick of these movies that are just total crap! This movie was so slow, made no sense, and had another horrific ending. If I had paid to watch this at the show I would have been even more mad. You couldn`t pay me to sit there and watch this movie again. You keep waiting for it to pick up and for the strange kid to reveal his reasons for what he did and it just never comes. Nothing that he does is shown on-screen. DO NOT waste your money renting this movie, I`m warning you. 1 of the worst I have ever seen in my 44 years on this Earth,lol. I really can`t think of anything worse. I hope I save you 4 bucks on a rental fee.

    This movie was funny! I laughed the entire time. Reminded me of myself when I was a child.
