Critic Reviews for Popi
The first half, set in New York, is rich and warm, filled with the flavor of city life. The second half, involving the Florida plan, functions only on the level of TV situation comedy.
Audience Reviews for Popi
Although it buckles a little under the weight of it's preposterous premise, it's still a must-see for Alan Arkin fans. He's truly at the top of his game.
This is supposed to be one of the best and most popular movies of all time in its native country, but it didn't really do it for me.
Yet again I say, Alan Arkin deserved his Oscar this year. This is a powerfully quiet film about love and the lengths to which a parent might go in order to express that love. Arkin's misguided plan to find a better life for his sons only goes to prove that the bounds of familial love are often too strong to break, no matter how altruistic the intentions may be.
