Critic Reviews for Milton's Secret

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5)

Alas, even a prickly pro like Sutherland can't do anything to elevate a hokey self-help lecture disguised as family entertainment.

It's perfectly nutty and perfectly dull, like St. Vincent on Quaaludes.

Milton's Secret carries a powerful and important message, but the film feels ham-fisted, clichéd and overearnest at times, especially for adult viewers.

The script's anodyne lessons feel no fresher than the last dozen times enlightened moviemakers have shared them with us.

The theme of enlightenment has seldom come across as leaden as it is in "Milton's Secret," a dull drama based on the children's novel of the same name by spiritual author Eckhart Tolle.

It's not a perfect film, and it's admittedly rather slight, but it's a rare kind of picture done well.
