Not only doesn't achieve empathy for the minor plights of its human noodle of a hero Toby Regbo, it might actually make audiences understand the urge to bully.

These 2-D characters might as well be wearing T-shirts that say things like "Predatory College Professor" and "Self-Obsessed Father" on them.

Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You, a film based on Peter Cameron's novel, is several kinds of excruciating.

Irritating and clichéd.
16
We strongly insist that any pain you experience while watching this movie will never be useful, anytime or anyplace.

Slant Magazine
Roberto Faenza shoots his Manhattan-set action with a glossiness that's as bland as the soundtrack ballads.
