Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[A] well-photographed, lively and lightly comic film."
‑ David DeWitt, New York Times
"Doesn't try to be anything more than a soft-serve pull of treacly pandering."
‑ Aaron Hillis, Village Voice
"So bland and maudlin it'll have you crying "uncle""
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"[a] by-the-numbers feel good story"
‑ Jordan Hoffman, New York Daily News
"Bittersweet family comedy involves parental loss."

"Dedio undoubtedly wrote Ray Ray as a star turn, but the character is so forcefully written to be likable - in this case, as a nebulously defined everyman - that he never feels human enough to empathize with."
‑ Inkoo Kang, Los Angeles Times
"Too predictable for adults and too saccharine for even very young kids, this family-oriented comedy is strictly dullsville."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
