      Steve D laughable issues film with no real solutions, Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/02/23 Full Review Audience Member It's message is as subtle as nuking a country you're angry with. That being said, its heart is in the right place, and the performances are respectable. I'm pretty sure I couldn't go one year in grade school, without a teacher showing this in class. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a wonderful what if movie. It talks about what collective action can achieve for the world. I loved it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Haven't seen this movie in a long time. Perhaps its long overdue for a dvd release? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member (First and only viewing - 10/1/2009) Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member I really liked this movie it was on tv and it showed that one person can make a difference.

      Time Out Puerile. Mar 24, 2008 Full Review Janet Maslin New York Times The film's style is as doggedly ordinary as its story is preposterous. Rated: 2/5 Mar 24, 2008 Full Review Variety Staff Variety As amazingly bad as it is audacious, film will live forever in the hearts of connoisseurs of Hollywood's most memorably outrageous moments. Mar 24, 2008 Full Review Ángel Luis Inurria El Pais (Spain) Amazing Grace and Chuck is a worthy movie. It's not great, but it is interesting and personal. [Full Review in Spanish] Mar 30, 2020 Full Review Christopher Null Filmcritic.com Ultimately Mike Newell manages to make the film into something worthwhile. Rated: 3.5/5 Mar 24, 2008 Full Review TV Guide [Director Mike Newell] might have fared better had he employed a more whimsical touch. Rated: 2/4 Mar 24, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews
