Movie Reviews

Boston Globe - 6/10 by Jay Carr Inherently condescending, and finally awash in warm-bath sentimentality, this setup never goes out of style.
Portland Oregonian - 6/10 by Kristi Turnquist The big underachiever turns out to be DeVito, who is incapable of exhibiting believable warmth and complexity, or, indeed, of playing anyone who is not a cartoon.
Nolan's Pop Culture Review - 5/10 by Michael A. Smith Having taken basic training at Ft Jackson, SC this film had a lot of memories for me. Plus Penny Marshall autographed my "League of Their Own" poster for me after the premiere.
ReelViews - 5/10 by James Berardinelli Renaissance Man is a movie of moments, too many of which are mediocre or unfulfilling.
Washington Post - 5/10 by Desson Howe This is not brilliant emotional manipulation.
Washington Post - 5/10 by Hal Hinson A movie that celebrates the life of the mind and the uniqueness of the individual but does so in glib slogans and is, itself, a sort of knockoff.
Baltimore Sun - 5/10 by Stephen Hunter From the ad campaign, we pretty much know how things are going to turn out, and her pedestrian attempts at subplots are even more transparent than those in "Awakenings."
Time - 4/10 by Richard Corliss Warm-hearted humanism is glopped all over Renaissance Man in the hopes that we won't notice that the story makes no sense.
Los Angeles Times - 4/10 by Peter Rainer Renaissance Man is a labored, unconvincing comedy that seems cobbled together out of the half-understood remnants of its betters.
Empire - 4/10 by Kim Newman This is a feel good movie which is too mechanically put together to make you feel anything.
Variety - 4/10 by Brian Lowry Marshall has tried to do too much, dealing with certain subplots too sparingly to deliver on their promise.
User Review - 10/10 by Joyce M This is not the usual kind of DeVito movie where he is brimming over with sarcasm. This is more than that! A really genuine personal experience with seemingly real people.
