Critic Reviews for Phil
I kind of appreciate that it was trying to take a different take on suicide... Unfortunately, Stephen Mazur's script just doesn't work.
Character development is non-existent, and isolated scenes resonate with occasional whimsy, but they don't add up to a satisfying whole. The adjective that best describes Phil is preposterous.
The movie is about how he learns to love life again by giving himself over to his make-believe alter ego, and if Kinnear had pushed that idea further, it might have jelled.
The movie resolves with a degree of grace and humanity that eludes its first two acts, but at that point there's precious little use for it.
