Critic Reviews for The Blue Butterfly

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

The patronizing, gratuitous sentimentality undermines what could and should have been a simple story of courage and beauty.

December 22, 2005 | Full Review…

Pete McCormack's script only occasionally yields to melodrama. Mostly it allows the characters to breathe freely, expressing a greater range of human emotion than just love and sympathy.

March 5, 2004 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Feels as forced and sentimental as one of those disease-of-the-week melodramas that were once the mainstay of U.S. television.

March 5, 2004 | Rating: 2.5/4

Something like an unfunny version of "Dutch."

July 13, 2004 | Rating: 1/5

If this film was of an American Beauty-standard, wouldn't it be wasted on the ten-year-olds and grandmothers that the production is really geared towards?

March 8, 2004 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Literally half the experience of this movie involves watching the wildlife. And on this level The Blue Butterfly works magnificently.
