More Info:
  • Rex Reed

    There is a lot to admire here. Writer-director Alejandro Monteverde (Bella) is not afraid to take his time letting you get to know the characters or moving things along, but the movie never seems ponderous.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    In the end, this is a pleasant parable, brimming with Rockwellian visuals and homespun decency. Harder hearts will dismiss it as corny and manipulative, which it is. Sometimes there's nothing wrong with that.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Bill Zwecker

    While the lead actors deliver lovely performances, it’s a shame they have to work with material so ham-handed and overbearing.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Walter Addiego

    The film has a good cast, and is competently made in a plain-vanilla way, but its greatest appeal will be to those who share its endorsement of traditional religious values.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Little Boy is loaded with weighty subjects and teachable moments, all doled out between generous helpings of tragedy and sentiment. It’s ambitious, but a cluttered weeper whose lessons might have stuck, had there been fewer of them.

    Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    It conveys life experience to such a sentimentalized degree that the world comes to resemble only the sham of a Norman Rockwell painting.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Stephen Farber

    What makes it intermittently palatable even to non-believers is that it acknowledges some of the darker truths of the era.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Functioning as more parable than sermon, it offers at least a hint of a blueprint for other faith filmmakers who want their message to reach beyond the front pew.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Inkoo Kang

    Most impressively, the film admits that the line between faith and magical thinking isn’t as solid as most believers would care to admit — and the Church knows it. Unfortunately, these worthwhile ideas are contained in a phony-baloney tale more artificial than a polyester teddy bear stuffed with Splenda and Cheez Whiz — and just as appealing.

  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Checking subtlety at the door, Monteverde goes for broke on the emotional-manipulation front. Perhaps that's OK as a device for illustrating a parable, but it doesn't make for much of a movie.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    It’s meant to be a tale of uplift for faith-based audiences, but instead wears viewers down with a heavy-handed narrative, an overbearing score and voiceover that spells out everything in cringe-inducing, folksy tones.

    RogerEbert.com Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    The film is so bizarre, contrived, manipulative, and meretricious that anything is possible.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Director Monteverde, whose previous feature, "Bella," came out nine years ago, clearly meant his film to lift up everyone and condescend to no one, least of all Pepper and Hashimoto. But Little Boy comes off as a picture-postcard fake.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Little Boy is a as phony as a game of three-card monte.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    It's all simplistic sermonizing in director and co-writer Alejandro Monteverde's hands, devoid of any thoughtful messiness about wartime mind-sets or family despair, and quick to sand any edges with postcard-pretty coastal town vistas and cutesy music cues.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    A drearily sincere movie about faith and tolerance, Little Boy boasts plenty of good intentions but very little else.

    Screen International Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    A colossal miscalculation in audience uplift.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Though Wilkinson gives an atypically restrained performance that lends the movie its best moments, and Watson manages to breathe a little life into her underwritten character, the movie is hopelessly simple-minded, with corny fantasy sequences, slathered-on folksiness and a plot twist that it would take a miracle of self-delusion not to see coming.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    The steady performances of Tom Wilkinson, playing a kindly priest, and Emily Watson, an angelic mother, in Alejandro Monteverde’s Little Boy do little to offset the cloying sweetness of a movie that has the haranguing inspirational tone of a marathon Sunday-school lesson.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Somewhere amid the storytelling rubble in Little Boy there’s a decent message against racial prejudice. But it’s suffocated beneath a hokey premise and hopelessly square execution.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    In some ways it takes the right approach, attempting to mix moral lessons into a narrative rather than hit audiences over the head with them. But the lessons are so pat that every moment in which Pepper makes a good moral choice feels like an act of self-congratulation.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    The problem here isn’t theological; even if it were in service of a different message entirely, the sheer gracelessness of Monteverde’s storytelling would be a massive turnoff.

    Variety Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Examinations of faith on film don't have to be noxious.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    For all its unsubtle sentimentality (including a you-can-see-it-from-a-mile-away plot twist), it remains unclear whether Little Boy intends to celebrate the conviction of belief or to mock it. It’s an unfortunate confusion that permanently stunts its growth.
