Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Well intentioned but failed attempt at morality story about homelessness"
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Fascinating, overlooked reworking of Leo the Last."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Misses the mark by a mile."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice

‑ James Sanford, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"Well-intentioned hunk of trash."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
