Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Works best if you can switch off your brain. Those who can will reach weepy nirvana. Those who can't will find this sticky-sweet wallow a bit, well, dumb."
‑ Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today
"Flawed story, but compelling story does hook one."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Touching supernatural thriller that works thanks to compelling performances from its stars."

"The part of the movie where Malley awakens to the possibilities around him is interesting, but then it loses its way."
