Colossal Disappointment

Peter Jackson's "The Lovely Bones" has been getting lackluster reviews so far after having people think it could've been the big awards candidate for the year. Not anymore, as it turns out.

"Jackson undermines solid work from a good cast with show-offy celestial evocations that severely disrupt the emotional connections with the characters."
-Todd McCarthy, Variety

"Some books are not meant to be adapted to the big screen. Alice Sebold's best-selling The Lovely Bones falls into that category."
-Claudia Puig, USA Today

"The filmmakers’ evident affection for the book expresses itself as a desperate scramble to include as much of it as possible, which leaves the movie feeling both overcrowded and thin."
-A.O. Scott, The New York Times
