This time the cute factor doesn’t get in the way of meaningful characters and it’s a much better picture as a result.
Not only do Diaz and Segel lack believability as a couple, they’re simply too old to be acting this foolish in this unfunny 'comedy.'
A magnificent experiment that succeeds in a fashion so spectacular that not even the most dazzling CGI-driven popcorn movie can match it.
Every cliché is covered, and there are plot holes big enough to drive a tank through, but it's all about the spectacle and effects.
A shallow slog of a movie that never delivers the magic, fun or creativity of all the films (E.T., The Goonies, etc.) it aspires to be.
