This movie has nothing to do with romance, relationships or even sudden, pleasant affair. It's a disgust in it's pure form and contents. Two separate storeis are completely unrelated and look artificial: Kate's character unhappy relationship and child molester. Perhaps both stories are sucked out of the finger of whomever wrote this low level pervert cast/story. The lack of main canvas is also

This movie struck a disturbing chord with me, in a good way. This movie shed light on the inner workings of some suburban communities. It's safe to say that the convictied sex offender was not the sickest person in the plot. 4 stars

Providing richness of detail and metaphor, elegantly blueprinted themes and impressive mastery of a constantly shifting tone, Little Children does just that. It is a deeply satisfying film. Full Review

The New York Times
The result is a movie that is challenging, accessible and hard to stop thinking about...But in too many recent movies intelligence is woefully undervalued, and it is this quality -- even more than its considerable beauty -- that distinguishes Little Children from its peers. Full Review

The movie is one of the few films I can think of that examines the baffling combination of smugness, self-abnegation, ceremonial deference and status anxiety that characterizes middle-class Gen X parenting, and find sheer, white-knuckled terror at its core. Full Review

USA Today
Little Children maintains much of the power, humor and nuance of Tom Perrotta's wonderful novel, but seems unsure if it's a satire or a serious drama. Full Review
Dana Stevens
All of the actors, most notably Winslet, are superb, but the movie belongs to Jackie Earle Haley, a former child actor. Full Review
