Heart felt and funny. It was a pleasant surprise!
If you’re into main characters that have a high heel fetish and a feminist message, this movie is for you. I found it too SJW to enjoy and couldn’t finish it.
I took a friend to see this. On my birthday. I wish it was my deathday instead. High hopes coming from brilliant actors and an amazing director!!! Wow! Two hours of of celluloid $#!+ that I deserved to lose a friend over. As a trama survivor, I anticipated the process and interpretation. I appreciated the cinematic prowess but I would rather have Gigli on repeat with the soundtrack of Frozen blaring on cracked speakers while drinking curdled warm milk... Ok that's too far - I definitely couldn't stomach the Frozen soundtrack; so, I'll let that Go.
This story is touching, funny, and is a great lesson in humanity. The visual effects with the dolls is really well done too
I know it’s a true story, but it was way too slow, hard to keep up with
All negative reviews most likely came from Individuals who have never suffered a traumatic event.
This movie is amazing. And more of a gift for the man who is being portrayed. He gets to see his world come to life through special effects. If you don't like this movie then you are what is wrong with the world. People are different. Get over it.
This was a sweet movie tied to a sincere global message love
One of the worst movies I’ve seen in some time, good cast, bad movie. Wish I could get my money back. Rotten Tomatoes was overly generous with this rating.
Great movie! Don’t listen to the negative reviews. This movie is full of heart and very well directed!
I dont understand the negative reviews. The animation is very good and fun, and the way the story os told through the animation and steve carrel’s action figures, and he feels and sees things is incredibly original and heartfelt. I don't remember seeing ptsd told that qay. Love leslie mann too and the other that was in nurse jackie. Very touching at times, well for me !
The subtleties of this film are easily overlooked if the viewer simply takes the story at face value. In the imagination of Mark Hogancamp, anything goes, but the scenarios that unfold, however extravagant, are rooted in his salvation and in his desire to honour, in his own way, those that represent that salvation. Look beyond the surface of this film and understand that this is a glimpse into a flawed but quietly hopeful healing process, and maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of what it’s really about.
