Critic Reviews for Amy

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7)

This well-meaning film is really just another one-hanky slum fairy tale -- this time with an Aussie accent.

December 14, 2001 | Full Review…

Nowhere near as good as Tass and Parker's best film, the delightful Malcolm.

June 19, 2001 | Rating: 2/4

Ultimately undone by a less-than-credible, often cloying screenplay marked by underdeveloped characters and contrived situations.

May 28, 2001

A crowd-charming contemporary fable with more than a touch of Dickens in its go-for-broke heart.

Provides satisfactions that must be balanced against its flaws.

May 18, 2001 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It's far too easy to hold a grudge against Nadia Tass's stultifying Amy, which would set a new bar for mawkish exploitation of a child's suffering if its every situation and character weren't so laughably bogus.

Audience Reviews for Amy

BEST MOVIE I've seen in a looong time. It definitely evoked a lot of emotion and some tears. Incredible acting by young De Roma and very interesting storyline.
