The Odd Life Of Timothy Green Review

27 December 2012 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Peter Hedges

Cast: Jennifer Garner, Joel Edgerton, Cj Adams

Running Time: 105 minutes

Certificate: PG

Synopsis: A childless couple  bury a box in their backyard containing all of their wishes for the perfect child. Soon, a child is born, but little Timothy Green is not all that he appears…

Meet the Greens. A seemingly ordinary couple who want one thing more than anything in the world: simply to have a child, and not just any child, but their perfect child. As the parents, Cindy and Jim Green (excellently played by Hollywood mainstay Jennifer Garner and the gradually increasing presence that is Joel Edgerton) place a box containing their ideal child traits in the garden during a freak storm, in typical Disney fashion, their child appears.

There is something not quite right about Timothy Green (Cj Adams) who is more strange than miraculous.

Don’t get me wrong, Cj Adams is »

Blu-ray Review: Bizarre Misfire ‘The Odd Life of Timothy Green’ Falls Flat

18 December 2012 7:29 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” is the sort of extravagantly wrong-headed misfire that perhaps only could’ve been made by talented people. The director is Peter Hedges, an accomplished screenwriter best known for adapting his excellent book, “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape,” for the big screen. The ensemble cast reads like a roll call of America’s most reliable character actors.

What went wrong? Oh, where to begin? It appears as if Hedges had set out to construct a heartwarming family drama out of increasingly uncomfortable, squirm-inducing scenarios. Consider the multitude of moments in which goggle-eyed adults ask a child if they can touch him and he happily complies. Or the scene where that same creepy kid draws a startlingly sexy portrait of an old curmudgeon. Or how about all of those times when the saintly brat just stands there smiling for no apparent reason.

Blu-ray Rating: 1.5/5.0

Meet the extremely odd Timothy Green, »

Disney Blu-ray Roundup: ‘Finding Nemo’ a must-own, while ‘Odd Life of Timothy Green’ a mild charmer

3 December 2012 9:05 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The holiday shopping season is in full swing, and just in case you were hoping Walt Disney Pictures wouldn’t add to the burden on your wallet, I hate to, but have to disappoint you. With three more shopping weeks left until Christmas Day, they’ve got two new Blu-ray/DVD combos for our perusal, The Odd Life of Timothy Green and Finding Nemo, both of which were among their big early-fall releases. Of course, the Pixar entry was getting a 3D re-release after its original 2003 release, but still, it’s a notable release because now you can finally claim ownership of every Pixar feature film.

I almost feel bad for not wholeheartedly loving The Odd Life of Timothy Green, an extraordinarily sincere and earnest family film about a childless couple who, one night, discover that their wishes and prayers to become adoptive parents has come true in the form »

Love Sick Love – Sliff Review

14 November 2012 12:22 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Dana Jung

Just when you thought it was safe to settle back and enjoy a nice indie romantic comedy full of witty and insightful commentary on the nature of modern relationships, along comes the new film Love Sick Love. This is a movie that goes from plot twist to plot twisted.

The story begins with Dori, an attractive woman in the big city, phoning her current love interest, Norman. It is immediately established (with some humorous assistance from a co-worker played by comedian Jim Gaffigan) that Norman is a player. He has an eye for the ladies, is sleeping with his ex, and regards Dori as ‘casual sex’. as the cliche goes. Dori obviously feels differently, and invites Norman away to a secluded country home for the weekend. Ignoring Dori’s clear signals of attachment, Norman accepts and is soon plunged into a single man’s nightmare of dating and demented holiday celebrations. »

Eight Counts of Grand Theft Cinema

30 October 2012 12:03 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We love crime movies. We may go on and on about Scorsese’s ability to incorporate Italian neo-realism techniques into Mean Streets (1973), the place of John Huston’s The Asphalt Jungle (1950) in the canon of postwar noir, The Godfather (1972) as a socio-cultural commentary on the distortion of the ideals of the American dream blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda…but that ain’t it.

We love crime movies because we love watching a guy who doesn’t have to behave, who doesn’t have to – nor care to – put a choker on his id and can let his darkest, most visceral impulses run wild. Some smart-mouth gopher tells hood Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci), “Go fuck yourself,” in Scorsese’s Goodfellas (1990), and does Tommy roll with it? Does he spit back, “Fuck me? Nah, fuck you!” Does he go home and tell his mother?

Nope.

Unsung Gems – ‘Blood Simple ‘

28 October 2012 1:52 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Blood Simple

Directed by Joel Coen

Screenplay by Joel Coen & Ethan Coen

USA, 1984

Love them or loathe them, the Coen Brothers are indisputably an institution in Hollywood cinema, lone wolves of distinctive style and tone who continue to put out top standard films never as straightforward as they seemingly should do. The signature brand of farcical situations, gallows humor and bleakly cynical philosophy that Ethan and Joel sign off each of their works with has become just as imitable, and just as irreplaceable, as Scorcese beat editing or Tarantino small talk.

To find their purest work, one merely has to go back to their bow as fully fledged filmmakers, 1984’s Blood Simple. Named for a Dashiell Hammett coinage and putting an authentically idiotic slant on classic amoral hardboiled noir, the duo’s debut has since become the clear inspiration behind numerous pretenders in the years since. Unlike their later efforts, »

The Odd Life Of Timothy Green

Review by LondonFilmFan 

Stars: Jennifer Garner, Joel Edgerton, Cj Adams, Odeya Rush, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Rosemarie DeWitt, David Morse, M. Emmet Walsh | Written by Peter Hedges, Ahmet Zappa | Directed by Peter Hedges

As Ben Affleck has resurrected his career post-Bennifer implosion with a series of increasingly impressive directorial efforts, it’s easy to speculate that the Gigli star has learned a thing or two about the perils of working alongside romantic partners.  So whilst Jennifer Garner’s husband wows critics with his latest release, Argo, the former “Alias” leading lady is left to take on a seemingly endless stream of lacklustre big screen projects.  With a résumé that already includes the maligned Arthur remake, an odious Valentine’s Day and the *ahem* unforgettable Elektra, Garner can now add Disney’s The Odd Life of Timothy Green to her growing list of movie mistakes.

New ‘Odd Life of Timothy Green’ Movie Delivered Lots Of Weird Drama & Interesting Plot

18 August 2012 9:30 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

New 'Odd Life of Timothy Green' movie delivered lots of weird drama & interesting plot. Walt Disney Pictures released their new drama/fantasy flick "Odd Life of Timothy Green." I just checked it out,and I thought it was definitely an odd movie to say the least. The storyline seemed very interesting,mostly because Timothy just sprouted up from the ground to be these folk's son for a while. That could only be interesting. The movie stars: Jennifer Garner, Joel Edgerton, Cj Adams, Ron Livingston, Dianne Wiest, Odeya Rush, Rosemarie DeWitt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, M. Emmet Walsh, Lois Smith,and Common. In the new flick, a happily married couple named Cindy and Jim Green are told they can't conceive children,so one day, they write down what type of child they would like to have and put it in a box. Then they buried it in the back yard. One night, a big storm goes down, »

Cj Adams Talks The Odd Life Of Timothy Green

17 August 2012 5:00 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Despite all the famous character actor faces in The Odd Life of Timothy Green (Jennifer Garner, Joel Edgerton, Diane Wiest, M. Emmet Walsh, David Morse, Common…), the true star of the film is, perhaps not surprisingly, the titular twelve-year-old boy himself.  Cj Adams has the more than herculean task of not only acting opposite some great actors but also of carrying the very film.  The entire picture hinges around his performance – and one’s willingness to accept that this precocious kid can change the lives of all he interacts with, let alone the fact that the kid’s got leaves growing out of his ankles. In the following interview, Cj Adams discusses the process of getting the starring role, what it was like to work alongside such famous faces, and how he interprets who the mysterious Timothy Green really is.  For the full interview, hit the jump. And If you missed them, »

The Odd Life of Timothy Green

Directed by: Peter Hedges

Cast: Joel Edgerton, Jennifer Garner, Cj Adams, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ron Livingston, E. Emmet Walsh, Common

Running Time: 1 hr 40 mins

Rating: PG

Release Date: August 15, 2012

Plot: A married couple (Edgerton and Garner) looking to have a child are stunned to find their dream child (Adams) randomly show up in their house one rainy night.

Who’S It For? This is a PG-rated movie for families about parenting. The content is safe for families, though it does focus most on experiences older folk would only understand (such as dingus bosses, or the lack of glamor working crummy simple-minded jobs).

Expectations: I hadn’t much to think of this one, other than its casting, which primarily meant the intrigue of Joel Edgerton (Animal Kingdom, Warrior) in a Disney movie. When I heard this one was directed by Peter Hedges, I was reminded that »

The Odd Life Of Timothy Green – The Review

15 August 2012 6:45 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In creating his entertainment empire, Walt Disney knew that his company needed to branch out beyond animation. Those hand-drawn classics took a long time to craft, so he first produced adventure flicks out of England before his take on Jules Verne, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, which was a box office sensation in 1954. Establishing a live-action division, Walt released several family flicks over the next few decades ranging from adventures like Swiss Family Robinson to the kids comedies featuring Herbie, the Love Bug and The Apple Dumpling Gang. Oops, almost forgot the tear-jerkers, those warm family flicks like Follow Me Boys and ( gulp! ) Old Yeller ( I recall a stand-up comic saying that the flick was a test that parents could give their kids-if the kid cried at the end of Yeller, then he was normal ). Many of the movies would be chopped up and turned into multiple episodes of that Sunday night TV staple, »

Film Review: ‘The Odd Life of Timothy Green’ Misses Emotional Connection

15 August 2012 9:11 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Peter Hedges’ “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” has a warm, gooey center that’s admirable in a family movie way but what’s around it can’t hold together as the lack of focus in the narrative and the rather grating performance from the young man playing its title character causes it to annoy more than entertain. I want to like “Timothy Green.” I don’t think there are enough fantasy-driven family films and the cast is filled with actors that I’ve enjoyed before. But the movie simply doesn’t have the energy or creativity it needed to connect.

Rating: 1.5/5.0

Cindy (Jennifer Garner) and Jim Green (Joel Edgerton) are meeting with a pair of adoption officers (Shohreh Aghdashloo & Michael Arden) and they have a story to tell that won’t fit on the form that asks them why they’d make good parents. It’s the story »

'The Odd Life of Timothy Green' Movie Review (2012)

15 August 2012 9:02 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Greens can't have children and, in the midst of that continued realization, sit down one night and begin to imagine their child into existence. Over a bottle of wine they come up with traits that would make up their perfect child, "Our kid will score the winning goal, have a big heart, be honest to a fault." The list goes on. As the night wears on, reality sets in and, in a bit of a morbid twist, they bury the note paper, on which they dreamed up this fantasy child, in their garden. This child... was never meant to be...

From this event, Cindy and Jim Green (Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton) experience a miracle. A flash rain storm drenches their house that night and where a box of personality traits and accomplishments was once buried, there's now only a hole and a dirty 10-year-old boy (Cj Adams) is running through their house. »

The Odd Life of Timothy Green

Directed by Peter Hedges

Written by Peter Hedges and Hamet Zappa

U.S.A., 2012

Everyone has their favorite Disney film. Actually, honesty is always the best policy, and pegging little deeper into the opinions of movie fans that hold the famed studio  in high regard should reveal that most people have multiple favorites because s many if them are terrific and etched in the memories of film buffs. The Lion King, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Dumbo, The Little Mermaid. Those are but some of the many, many titles pronounced when the topic of favorite Disney films comes up. The common denominator is that they are all of the animated variety. Who cites their favorite as Tron, Prince of Persia, Escape from Witch Mountain or The Rocketeer? It seems as though Disney’s live action movies are doomed To be second rate when »
