This is a sweet, gentle film - slow and sunny like a summer day, with a message that growing up can be hard, but can also serve as the wellspring of memories that will sustain you for a lifetime.

Chicago Sun-Times
A movie like this falls outside ordinary critical language. Is it good or bad? Is there too much melodrama? I don't have any idea. It triggered too many thoughts of my own for me to have much attention left over for footnotes.

San Francisco Chronicle
Though its sentiment may be lost on the very young, the movie is strictly two-hanky fare.

USA Today
A family movie with a heart and a brain. And if you aren't moved to tears, you might need an organ transplant.
75
The film's vintage setting is as much a character as any other. Some of the best moments evoke the best parts of easygoing small town life in a bygone era.
75
A film that proves even the tiredest genre can be reinvigorated in the right hands.

Baltimore Sun
Romantically nostalgic, a love letter to growing up in simpler times.

Entertainment Weekly
A serviceable time-passer for kids, grandparents, and poochophiles.

Grows on you like kudzu.

Certainly there are people who will welcome this kind of "wholesome" family entertainment, but it feels false.

It plays out like an endless series of scenes we've seen before.
