      Joe Williams St. Louis Post-Dispatch This homey construct is warm, exactingly crafted and painted with pop-country tones. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 20, 2010 Full Review Ann Hornaday Washington Post A film that always chooses optimism and wishful thinking over realism. Rated: 2/4 Aug 20, 2010 Full Review Moira MacDonald Seattle Times In its murky light, the film is filled with details that seem utterly true... Rated: 3/4 Aug 19, 2010 Full Review Sarah Manvel Critic's Notebook A minor miracle. Aug 9, 2018 Full Review Chris Hewitt St. Paul Pioneer Press There's enough material here for two movies, and frankly, neither sounds like one I'd want to see. Rated: 2/4 Aug 20, 2010 Full Review Gerald Peary Boston Phoenix It's so sincerely good-willed, and the performances are low-key and terrific, especially Skarsgård as the more big-hearted of the gay marrieds.

      Art of Z Its comedy romance but there is no comedy in it. But it was pretty good movie. But problem with the movie is they didn't really focused on Patrick's character even his name is literally the title of the movie. Ending was bit problematic when Sven comeback. At first everything was moody realistic and depressing until writers forced to reunite our divorced couple. It was soooo unrealistic. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/12/24 Full Review PridePosterStudios The sort of story a friend/acquaintance pitches to you and you’re like “Mmm…yeah, s…sounds…good?” *grimace* Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 06/20/24 Full Review david l Patrik, Age 1.5 is a predictable and unrealistic Swedish romantic comedy that has a lot of heart. The acting performances are great and the characters are highly endearing. The film's message about the importance of healthy parental relationships was wonderful while the humor was also excellent. Its fairy tale ending aside, the flick remains enjoyable and heartwarming throughout. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review andy n God, what a great movie! What a nonsensical story. What a fine acting. What a filigree scenario. After this movie, I want to live and love. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review yke v This movie should come with a warning: it's homophobic as F*.. It's written for straight people, so they can feel comfortable Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Another great foreign movie. I like how the gay side of it was not overly sexualized like with other movies. I didn't, however, see the need or reason for the Sven character to come back. An alcoholic, philandering individual that blatantly cheated on his husband during their seperation. I had hoped that the Goran character would have shed some of his pandering ways and gained some independence as a single parent. They could have done away with Sven (who never had any interest in Patrik except to watch him changing his clothes) during the ending and focused more on Patrik and Goran developing their father-son realtionship and ultimate succesful adoption.
