Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"New Line powerbroker/director Robert Shaye has made a children's film for stoners, a trippy, psychedelic fable that belongs in the DVD section of New Age bookstores alongside the strangely similar What The Fuck Do We Know?"
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"The special effects are kinda cheesy, and it's a low-rent E.T."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Does an excellent job both making science fiction accessible for a younger audience."
‑ Heather Huntington, ReelzChannel.com
"Considering that parts are frightening, parts are nauseatingly sweet, and it's all confusing, it's not clear which demographic Mimzy is aiming for."
‑ Tricia Olszewski, Washington City Paper
"Quirky sci-fi adventure best for fantasy lovers."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"It's refreshing to be reminded that an intelligent, exciting family movie isn't always an oxymoron."
‑ David Fear, Time Out New York
"The Last Mimzy is that phenomenon as welcome as the first robin of spring, a kids' movie that is more than bearable for adults."
‑ Jonathan F. Richards, Film.com
"Classic kids' fantasy in the spirit of Flight of the Navigator and ET."
‑ Joe Utichi, FilmFocus
"O'Neil and Wryn convey the occult and the mysterious with greater depth than you'd expect them to possess at their respective ages of 13 and 7."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
"For much of its scant 96 minutes Mimzy is rudderless in a muddle of metaphysical malarkey and time-travelling science fiction."
‑ Kevin Williamson, Jam! Movies
"Occasionally arresting ideas and a non-condescending attitude to its pre-teen protagonists give this more character than many effects-driven family fantasies, even if it's ultimately too wonky in construction to sweep us along convincingly."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Wholesome, eager entertainment that doesn't talk down."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"I like to refer to it as "Donnie Darko" sans the violence if aimed towards kids..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"Mimsy seems watered down and limp, especially as it concludes."
‑ Jonathan W. Hickman, Entertainment Insiders
