Movie Critics
Chicago Sun-Times
"Murphy stays interestingly in character....The film is really about the father-daughter relationship, and Murphy comes through as sincere, confused, lonely and with a good heart."
Roger Ebert (10 Jun 2009, )
Hollywood Reporter
"What quickly yanks the story into a fresh realm in this screenplay by Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson are a daughter's imaginary friends."
Kirk Honeycutt (7 Jun 2009, )
Los Angeles Times
"Murphy's his usual creative, quicksilver self....When he's on top of his game, particularly during several virtuoso comic sequences, you remember why Murphy ears the big bucks."
Gary Goldstein (12 Jun 2009, )
Variety
"[It's] likely that parents and their young offspring will be enchanted by those scenes in which the only special effect is the warm chemistry generated between sly pro Murphy and charming newcomer Shahidi."
Joe Leydon (7 Jun 2009, )
Wall Street Journal
"[The] child -- she's played by Yara Shahidi -- leads Mr. Murphy back to his own gifts, and she complements him in one delicate comic sequence after another."
(12 Jun 2009, )
Washington Post
"[A] redemptive act for Murphy....[He's] believable, sympathetic and often very funny..."
John Anderson (12 Jun 2009, )
