Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Harks back to a time when movies had more to do with imagination than market research."
‑ Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Bledel and Jonathan Jackson's gorge-side canoodling drifts dangerously close to Blue Lagoon territory."
‑ Ed Park, Village Voice
"Lovely version of the favorite middle-school book."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"There is no life in the story, and what could be a thoughtful rumination on mortality offers only pat Disneyfied lessons."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"With much to be enchanted by while you're watching and some worthwhile questions to think about afterwards, Tuck Everlasting is rewarding old-fashioned entertainment."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Those with the patience to submit to its low-energy charms may find their time well spent."
‑ Jocelyn Noveck, Associated Press
"A successful merger of the whimsical and the weird."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"A really good and thought provoking film on life and true romance."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Lambent, wholesome youth film, nothing short of magical, wherein a cosseted, cloistered lass escapes from her perennial confines of parental stuffiness ."
‑ Greg Muskewitz, eFilmCritic.com
"Attractively filmed and pleasantly conceived, it ventures too far into sentimentality, and not far enough into its fascinating life versus immortality subject matter."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"Any movie that signals the menace of a potential lynching by zooming its camera through the loop of a gallows noose cannot claim subtlety, but director Jay Russell never lets the swirling emotions of Tuck become too drippy."
‑ Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly
"Its weighty themes are too grave for youngsters, but the story is too steeped in fairy tales and other childish things to appeal much to teenagers."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"The entire production bears a certain medicinal scent; it may be good for you, but it's not exactly tasty."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"A great-looking film with beautiful scenery and some fine actors, but it lacks a good third act."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"At one point, Winnie says to Jesse that she 'wishes this moment could last forever.' I thought the movie was going to last forever."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
