Consensus: Though slow-moving, Tuck Everlasting raises big issues and explores them with sensitivity.

Eleanor Ringel Cater
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Harks back to a time when movies had more to do with imagination than market research.

Ed Park
Village Voice

Bledel and Jonathan Jackson's gorge-side canoodling drifts dangerously close to Blue Lagoon territory.

Those with the patience to submit to its low-energy charms may find their time well spent.

Ebert & Roeper

A successful merger of the whimsical and the weird.

Felix Vasquez Jr.
Cinema Crazed

A really good and thought provoking film on life and true romance.

Entertainment Weekly

Any movie that signals the menace of a potential lynching by zooming its camera through the loop of a gallows noose cannot claim subtlety, but director Jay Russell never lets the swirling emotions of Tuck become too drippy.

Washington Post

Its weighty themes are too grave for youngsters, but the story is too steeped in fairy tales and other childish things to appeal much to teenagers.

Michael Dequina

The entire production bears a certain medicinal scent; it may be good for you, but it's not exactly tasty.

When Alexis is dancing for Jesse it looks like he's masturbating. I'm serious, watch it again.

I love the book and the movie is pretty good as well. They did change some things though.
