Rated PG · 104 minutes · 2012

Comedy drama, Fantasy
It’s difficult to wrap one’s head around exactly who the target audience is for The Odd Life of Timothy Green. The life lessons are more geared toward reflective parents who have become empty-nesters. Meanwhile, because it’s a fantasy about a precocious boy who sprouts up out of a couple’s garden, there’s no way anyone older than the age of 10 could really fall under its spell. The problem with targeting ages 8 to 80 is that the result is never a slam-dunk for anyone; it is, at best, merely agreeable. The Odd Life of Timothy Green is friendly. It’s charming. It features the icecap-melting smile of Jennifer Garner and the big-eyed curiosity of CJ Adams as one family’s perfectly imperfect son. It’s a nice, safe movie, perfect for when parents and kids can’t agree on a movie they really want to see instead.

Charleston City Paper Too many unanswered questions in Timothy Green No one would be ostracized for viewing the trailer for Disney's latest live action drama, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, and jumping to the conclusion that it is another entry in the studio's mediocre family-film catalog. by Isaac Weeks 08/22/2012
