Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[Tass] accents the easy bathos of David Parker's script."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"Ultimately undone by a less-than-credible, often cloying screenplay marked by underdeveloped characters and contrived situations."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"All over the map, not able to make up its mind whether it wants to be slapstick or a heart-wrenching drama."
‑ Paula Nechak, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"A moving and wise story."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"This well-meaning film is really just another one-hanky slum fairy tale -- this time with an Aussie accent."
‑ Misha Berson, Seattle Times
"A crowd-charming contemporary fable with more than a touch of Dickens in its go-for-broke heart."
‑ Jan Stuart, Newsday
"An earnest attempt to fob off a sentimental and rather silly melodrama as a gritty piece of urban realism."
‑ Steve Simels, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Nothing to sing about."
‑ , E! Online
"Nowhere near as good as Tass and Parker's best film, the delightful Malcolm."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Provides satisfactions that must be balanced against its flaws."
‑ Lawrence Van Gelder, New York Times
"Effectively combines the genres of musical, drama and comedy in a delightfully, family-friendly film."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
