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

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

Good acting, VERY slow developing story, little action and terrible directing.

Just finished watching this on dvd. Not really sure how the mom and the dad jumped to the conclusion that the boy was messing with their heads. The movie never tells us what Joshua whispered to the uncle during the grandmother's viewing. I found the mom character to be very annoying. The boy is creepy, but it never pointed out directly what the boy did that creeped us out so much. Wouldn't it

Superbly crafted psychological thriller. Full Review

Only viewers with some appreciation for the odd, bloodless character of moneyed family life in New York will really understand how hilarious and deadly accurate this movie is. But then again, New York parents are the last people who will want to see it. Full Review

Harrowing, controlled and diabolically self-assured, Joshua leaves filmgoers teetering on their own emotional precipice, wondering just where pathos ends and pathology begins. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
Seductive and creepy, perfect for a hot summer night when nobody has the energy to pose a lot of questions. Full Review
