A.O. Scott
The New York Times
The ghastliness of this damp and squishy comedy is the byproduct of a confused and earnest sentimentality, a willful devotion to wide-eyed wonder that confuses simplicity with simple-mindedness. Full Review
Amy Biancolli
San Francisco Chronicle
The kid is a charmer, the message is heartfelt - love your kids while you can - and, OK, the ending might jerk a few tears, even from a crank like me. OK, it did. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Drama/comedy fables such as "Big" and "13 Going on 30" effectively transported viewers to their whimsical alternate reality. But Timothy Green feels more predictable than other-worldly. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Although little Timothy does arrive in unusual circumstances, his story will feel familiar to anyone who's encountered Hollywood's particular brand of calculated sentimentality. Full Review
John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
A fairy tale about parenting that stays kid-friendly without completely glossing over the darker themes of its premise. Full Review
