Reviews


80
L.A. Weekly - Unnamed
Playfully quirky film takes equal-time potshots at its many easy targets -- fundamentalism, intolerance, ethnic stereotypes.
78
Austin Chronicle - Kimberley Jones
It's a shame if the controversy surrounding Bubble Boy distracts people from what a smart, subversive, and genuinely good-hearted film it is.
75
San Francisco Chronicle - Edward Guthmann
This movie has a sweetness at its core.
60
The New York Times - A.O. Scott
When it clicks, the picture should shock you into laughter -- enough to make you wish it were better and applaud its efforts anyway.
58
Portland Oregonian - Diana Abu-Jaber
This is a semi-mean-spirited movie; had it remained that way, it could have redeemed itself.
