Someone deserves a timeout for letting this mawkish misfire get to the screen.

Williams at his versatile best

Robin Williams is a big kid. Wow, what a stretch.

High ickiness quotient in this weird dramedy
James Sanford - Kalamazoo Gazette
Coppola, of course, was abducted by aliens and replaced with a pod person in the middle of filming Godfather III.
Martin Scribbs - Low IQ Canadian
It seems unlikely that a Francis Ford Coppola movie starring the outrageous, hyperkinetic Robin Williams could be bland, but Jack is.

Nell Minow - Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
Terrible comedy. Depressing (he's basically going to die by 20) and the jokes are obvious. Williams is great and understated, but wasted in this script.
Fred Topel - About.com
Coppola was obviously having an off day with this manipulative and meaningless dribble of a dramedy. Robin Williams should consider omitting Jack from his film resume'.
