Movie Review: The Odd Life Of Timothy Green

A few nights ago our family had the opportunity to preview The Odd Life of Timothy Green, a new Disney film. Odd Life has the magic of ET without the spaceship. This film is enjoyable on so many levels, adults, children and teens alike will all enjoy it.

Disney Preview on YouTube The Odd Life of Timothy Green

The film is the story of a childless couple, Cindy and Jim Green (Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton)who find they cannot have a child of their own. So they create their dream child with all the characteristics they'd hoped their child would have. And to their surprise, after a storm one night, a young man shows up on their doorstep but he is just a little...different. Their young 'son,' Timothy Green (CJ Adams) is magical in many ways. Timothy has the gift of changing everyone around him for the better. Watch as Timothy and the small town he lives in, Stanleyville, learn that the unexpected and different can bring the greatest joys in life.

The film was directed by Academy Award®–nominated director/writer Peter Hedges (Dan in Real Life, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?)  Hodges once again touches hearts with his ingenious direction of an unusual story.

Check and see where it's playing near you and take your whole family. There aren't too many films these days that you can take the whole family from Grandma and Grandpa to the kids to see and everyone will enjoy it. So make it a family occasion and head to the movies this weekend for a fun filled afternoon or evening watching The Odd Life Of Timothy Green.

  1. Nice review Nancy. The performances in this film are what really saved it from eternal damnation but I’m at least glad it’s also a film that the whole family can see, as that’s exactly what I did.

  2. Thanks for the kudos. I do like a good family film even though my kids are grown up now, I recognize the importance of having films out there that are appropriate for a wide age range. Thanks for reading and commenting!
