I do not know how anyone with a heart and appreciation for acting would rate this movie lower than 4 (although I think it's 4.5-5). If you are expecting a lot of special effects though, then you will not like this movie based on a real life story.
Every school age child or teen should see this movie. Maybe some of the bullying would stop.
The Movie brings positive reflection to our lives and makes us learn how to love.
The best movie in the theatre now, we should learn to love people and create Wonders to this world.
Guys! the world is totally different now, people like to kill people without a reason. It is so terrible that we are living in this new world now. Tell yourself to LOVE one another and not kill each other. This movie is definitely a good mirror for us to see the best and the worst people that we have encountered every day. Learn the action of LOVE and make WONDER to the world that we all live.
Great acting and very good movie but reading the book was much better. It is a good family movie and excellent for schoolteachers to take their students after reading the book in class.
The theatre I went to was filled with young people ... Ages 10 to 15 so this movie had to relate to these kids who go through so much these days. Many ideals to follow and unfortunately only young people will learn this these days. So good for parents who take their kids to see this movie
A wonderful family movie about a courageous little boy and a strong loving family. The acting was superb. There were lots of young people in the audience when I went to see it and the movie got a standing ovation at the end.
I liked everything about the movie and book.
Lame. People get kindness after watching this movie? lol Give me a break.
Heartwarming! Feel good modern American film! Wonder touched on real Issues with sympathetic human characters dealing with going off to school for the first time , getting along with others, parenting, growing up, taking risks, family life, first love, friendship, conflict All in Compassionate animated kind and at times humorous ways! I thought it was very balanced w opportunities to laugh and cry; There were even a few special effects woven in that take you by surprise! Not one actor who stood out that I did not enjoy! Great cast; love OW and JR who blended beautifully together As parents and w the lead boy character and his sister! It was also Fun to visit various NYC locations! Overall a really sweet, heart centered feel good film!
Average fare. Trembay is very good. Execution came up short. The comments here are amusing. Defenders of this movie are saying how we must care for each other, then spout the most hateful vitriol at those who didn't like the movie! Ha!
It is a beautiful movie with feelings and a focus on values. Some of us want to see movies without guns, violence, vulgarity, and foul language. If you knew what this movie was about why do you go see it and give it a low rating! We can do without your stupid comments! If more people would see these type of movies the world wouldn't have so many problems.
This movie was very inspirational , and I felt the feels throughout the whole movie . I highly recommend it and it be perfect for the kids to see to learn about the effects on bullying other kids . Number one rule always be kind
Wonderful story....Well done!
great movie, so glad a brought a lot of Kleenex. the person that wrote the review, it needs more violence and bad language, what's with you anyway. the people that did not like the movie, you have your opinion, but come on do you guys have a heart. you must be young people. no clue.
Pure syrup. Pure garbage.
Very good movie in every aspect. The essence of American humanity today, and you should remember this as you watch the news and in your daily life. A fine movie for all ages, especially for the holidays.
Enjoyable movie, if you have a good heart.
The film is touching and brilliant!! 99/100 One-star raters, go back to Thor Ragnarok!!...guru bob
It was a good movie, great story. My husband and I enjoyed it very much!
I just see the commercial on TV and it looks amazing, funny and sad at times, just going by the commercial.
Sappy, baldly manipulative and hampered by some truly bad performances.
Best movie in a really long time for families! All kids should see this for sure. Great story and lesson for all ages about our differences and how to treat people. We need more like this!
Heartwarming, I cried through the whole thing.
I'm a grown man and I teared up at least 20 times during this movie. If this movie doesn't win a bucket load of awards then Hollywood is truly lost.
I loved the acting and they seemed like a real family. I wish everyone would learn from it and stop bullying kids....It is so bad for children to go through that.
It needed more violence and cursing.
Very good family movie for all ages. Bring the kids..its a good learning message they should see. Didn't know it was a true story..I told my grand-daughter I saw it and she is only 10 and said she read the book in school last year. Wish I brought her. Great acting! I wish there were more movies like this one without all the violence and cursing.
Predictable movie. How many times they are going to make this type of movies? The problem were the actors they chose for this movie. Terrible acting.
Very good Movie and Great Message. Every older kid and Adult Should See this Movie. The Cinema was Almost Sold out when I saw this and the Audience Clapped at the End. I Loved the Asternot Helment.
I wonder how this terrible schmaltz got green-lit.
Really a fantastic movie for all ages. They handed out kleenex on opening night! But it wasn't a sad movie, very uplifting actually. Poignant. Fabulous performances, fabulous lessons, great for kids to watch and see how to overcome being bullied.
I loved this movie! Great acting and a great message for all . Bring your tissues .
Every child and parents should see this movie. I loved it!
Every family with school aged children should see this movie WITH their kids.
predictable; its the same plot that has been done so many times before.
Maudlin, syrupy film, the kind that used to be regulated to made-for-tv movies. Predictable and baldly manipulative. Child actor Trembay is fine, but Julia Roberts is bad as usual (she is simply incapable of projecting warmth or authenticity convincingly.) Owen Wilson barely registers at all. Skip it.
Heartwarming,sad,funny and uplifting. A truly pleasant movie. Loved it. Even my husband loved it and that's rare!
