Critic Reviews of "Son of Rambow"Film.comMay 30, 2008
Jennings is clearly having a wonderful time recreating the fantasies of his youth, but sometimes his perspective get a little too inbred, and the picture suffers for it.Washington PostMay 16, 2008
We cringe and laugh at -- and are ultimately moved by -- their clumsiness and innocence. And it endears us to the Rambo films in ways we never could have anticipated.Miami HeraldMay 16, 2008
With apologies to Mr. Stallone, no one would ever argue First Blood was an essential part of any healthy childhood. But the ability to make-believe certainly is.Houston ChronicleMay 16, 2008
Son of Rambow is an inventive and amusing coming-of-age movie that deftly entwines elements of farce and fantasy, rebelliousness and sentiment, while paying seriously funny tribute to the transcendent power of art.Detroit NewsMay 16, 2008
These two boys have, along with writer-director Garth Jennings, turned a coming-of-age story into a treatise on both the fragility of artistic vision and the danger of popular opinion.Chicago Sun-TimesMay 16, 2008
After the movie, I imagined its writer-director, Garth Jennings (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) being more than a little like Will, and the movie uncannily similar to one of Will's comic epics.Boston PhoenixAugust 24, 2009
Funnier than anything in this vaguely dark comedy is the thought of [Sly] Stallone sitting through it.Bryant Frazer's Deep FocusSeptember 15, 2008
Crammed tight with every kid-pic cliche you can imagine.The AustralianSeptember 12, 2008
It's a fun idea, but quite awkwardly staged and, in the end, not particularly engaging.ReelzChannel.comSeptember 08, 2008
A feel-good family flick that doesn't pander to the younger members of the equation.MovieTime, ABC Radio NationalSeptember 05, 2008
This is a winner, a film to which you can safely take your kids and enjoy yourself.FILMINK (Australia)September 05, 2008
Waffles between heart-on-its-sleeve candor and winking self-awareness.
