The one movie that gives us hope that maybe one day we can all have that special ability to see true love on this political planet. Love, special feelings portrayed would be so wonderful. Kay Felton

Phenomenon (directed by Jon Turteltaub, the guy who sedated us with "While You Were Sleeping") would be pretty unbearable were Travolta not so consistently charming. Full Review

While Phenomenon attempts, tritely, to ascend into mind-blowing significance, it also plummets into a pit of sentimental mush. Full Review

A whopping wrong turn throws this lightweight, benign-looking movie terminally off course. Full Review

Still, well-intentioned sappiness is something we can deal with; the lack of any genuine dramatic conflict is a more damaging shortcoming. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Put simply, this movie is dumb. Full Review
