“The Odd Life of Timothy Green” is a fanciful story that has the same basic concept as two otherwise very different films: “Mary Poppins” and “Weird Science.” In all three movies, two people make a list of the qualities they’d want in an ideal...

One can only inject so much realism into a fairy tale before the illusion crumbles. The actual story of The Odd Life of Timothy Green knows exactly how far to go. Its setting is the ideal of Americana—a small town where everyone knows each other's...

These days, most of Disney’s heartwarming, family-oriented live-action fare ends up on the Disney Channel rather than in theaters, and The Odd Life of Timothy Green is clearly a future Disney Channel staple.

It always bothers me leaving a children’s film not knowing exactly who it’s intended audience is. Being that The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a PG Disney film, it certainly isn’t for adults. But after watching it, I can’t see kids 3-10...

The least we can expect from Disney is something to hold the kiddies' attention. When the studio is firing it up, they come out with product that works on levels for both the little tykes and the parents who are dragged there.

Disney’s new family fairy tale, “The Odd Life of Timothy Green,” invites critical derision, and Mom always taught me it was rude to refuse an invitation.

If Pinocchio met Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer met one of the carnivorous plants from the vintage sci-fi/horror movie The Day of the Triffids met Haley Joel Osment in A.I., their collective DNA, wiring and wood chips would form Timothy Green (CJ Adams).

There are few things sadder than a magic trick that doesn’t come off, and this live-action Disney movie feels like the cinematic equivalent of one. It desperately wants to be a poetically enchanting fable about the joys and problems of parenthood...

The title character of the heart-tugging fantasy crowd-pleaser The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a nerdishly sweet 10-year-old boy (CJ Adams) who lands on the doorstop of a childless couple (Joel Edgerton and Jennifer Garner).
