Editorial Reviews

Disney brings enchantment home with THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN, an inspiring, magical story for the whole family starring Jennifer Garner. Cindy (Garner) and Jim Green are a happily married couple who can't wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. When young Timothy shows up on their doorstep one stormy night, Cindy and Jim -- and their small town of Stanleyville -- learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life's greatest gifts. From Academy Award(R)-nominated director/writer Peter Hedges (ABOUT A BOY, Best Adapted Screenplay, 2002; DAN IN REAL LIFE; WHAT'S EATING GILBERT GRAPE) -- and complete with engaging bonus features -- it's a heartwarming celebration of family as only Disney can deliver.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, great movie August 4, 2012
By DP
Format:Blu-ray
I went to the prescreening of this movie and loved it. I'm a big fan of Jennifer Garner and a new fan of Joel Edgerton (Warrior was absolulutley amazing!) This movie has a great combination of humor, sadness, and love. The movie is rated PG, but it's not really a movie I would think my kids would enjoy mainly for the adult emotions that I think are present in the movie. The storyline is pretty simple, a couple that cannot have children are surprised by child showing up at their house one night and beliving he came from the garden (due to the leaves growing on his legs) they make alot of parenting mistakes, but love their new child. All while Timothy has a secret he isnt telling them about his leaves...Overall I will be buying this movie when it's released!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Summer Movie of 2012 August 21, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
So often people complain that current films lack quality matched with wholesome family films of years gone by...well needless to say it is here. What I am thoroughly impressed by is that this was put out by Disney and yet didn't feel like the typical live action Disney film. I was blown away by it's depth and it's heart.
For children it is a good lesson on tolerance and compassion. For parents and teachers it will hit straight to the heart. The young couple are pitch perfect in their performance and is probably Garner's best film aside from Juno. The young boy playing the title character will impress you with his depth, sweetness and will steal your heart.
What I love about this film is it's simple reminder of how we all put such a value on superficial ideals and status. I think what this films showcases is that despite failing never give up, even if you fail again. That you don't always have to be the best at something not to have great value. To let pure love lead our lives, minds, and hearts. That children don't have to be a star athlete or a next American Idol..to be considered a great gift that should be honored and not abused or taken on lightly.
I truly love this film greatly. I will be adding it to my collection and would highly recommend this for a gift or purchase. This film is recommended for 7 years old and up. Be embraced by the magic of Timothy Green. It's not odd, it's wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweetly moving! August 20, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
When Cindy and Jim Green learn that they are not able to have children, they spend one final evening imagining what their child would have been like (a name of Timothy, a talented artist, a big heart, honest to a fault, etc.). They put all those qualities in a box and bury it in their garden in their effort to "move on." But unusual things happen that night - a huge storm rains only on their house and a little boy named Timothy (with leaves growing out of his ankles) shows up in their house, muddy and naked.

He immediately calls them Mom and Dad and, after realizing that he is a magical gift from the garden, they welcome him and the challenges of parenthood, learning along the way.

The plot is fantastic and a little plodding. After all, it's basically following a fairly normal ten year-old about his everyday activities. The real joy of this movie is the characters (and the talented actors who portray them). There are lots of meaningful messages in this film about what constitutes a family, what it means to be a parent, balancing protecting children and allowing them to grow, and honesty. I teared up several times and I certainly wasn't the only one in the audience pulling out the tissues.

There's nothing very surprising or shattering about this film, but sometimes it's good just to be reminded to take joy in the simple/important things in life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once Upon a Time... August 25, 2012
Format:DVD
Once upon a time, Walt Disney Studios made family-oriented movies with a message, wrapped around the small joys and trials of ordinary life. Turns out they still do. "The Odd Life of Timothy Green" has an unexpected if charming premise, but the story is mostly about ordinary people working through a variety of family and life issues. It is a sentimental movie, but the laughs and the heartstring-tugging will work for most viewers.

Once upon a time in a small town, a young couple, Cindy and Jim Green (Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton), frustrated by their inability to conceive, bury their hopes and dreams about a child in a box in their garden. A strange overnight storm presents them with Timothy, a young boy who is a miracle in more ways than one. Cindy and Jim will be challenged to provide instant parenting to Timothy, and to explain his sudden appearence in their lives to their respective families and neighbors.

The movie layers multiple sub-plots one on another, including a dying parent and a distant one, sibling rivalries, an uncaring boss, a townwide crisis over a closing factory, a kid's soccer team, and a young girl looking for a kindred soul. Timothy will play a role in each of these sub-plots, which are populated with an exceptionally solid supporting cast. The movie telegraphs its ending, but it still manages to be both moving and entertaining. "The Odd Life of Timothy Green" is very highly recommended as a family movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Fantasy with Positive Messages August 15, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
It is unusual for a movie to be released mid-week, but this one opened Wednesday and so I was able to go on opening day. I was quite pleased with this fantasy film and think it contains excellent messages. Like the story "Tuck Everlasting", it is packaged in a family-type wrapping, but in many ways it is a fable for adults. There is a lot of symbolism that will be lost on younger children, and I think it can be watched by ALL but appreciated more by older children and adults.

The film starts by dealing with the painful reality that many couples face when they are told they are not able to conceive children. In their grief, the couple writes on pieces of paper about what they had dreamed for their child. He'll be artistic, he'll score the winning goal in a game, he'll be kind, and he'll have all the qualities that they have themselves, etc. They bury these in a box in the garden and overnight a miracle happens. The child they had dreamed of appears in their garden. This leads to interesting and humourous consequences.

This movie has a number of lessons. Children can learn from how the story embraces the idea that it's okay to be different. Having something unique about you is good, and you don't need to be ashamed to show it. Also, moms and dads are human and are doing the best they can. Sometimes they make mistakes, but are figuring out a lot of things as they go. The deeper theme which is more likely to be appreciated by teens and adults is about how children are a gift that is not to be squandered. We see the various "pitfalls of parenting" and mistakes that parents make in real life. The parents are shown as well meaning but making mistakes as they try to figure out what to do. Parenting is shown as a learning process too!
