    A warm, fuzzy and funny duet between [Kevin] Spacey and [Jeff] Bridges.

    Name user

    K-Pax goes all too quickly k-put.

    Name user

    As a brainless laugh riot, it's as funny as a flu epidemic. As a drama, it's an unintentional Robin Williams vehicle sour beyond its shelf life.

    Name user

    The specter of Robin Williams looms large.

    Name user

    Ultimately, the movie may puzzle audiences more than entertain them.

    Shows signs of intelligent life.

    As a pop parable of heavenly reassurance and redemption, Ian Softley's K-PAX is probably the kind of entertainment the movie industry refers to when it promises gentler, feel-good fare in light of current anxieties.

    Name user

    A queasy amalgamation of Awakenings, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Starman.

    Flawed script turns well-acted K-PAX into a near miss.

    Name user

    Spacey rings all the right emotional bells as well, and could probably score another Oscar for playing Prot.

    3/4
    Name user

    A syrupy melange of psychobabble and extraterrestrial mystery, offering further proof that planet Hollywood is made of cheese, with lots of holes.

    Name user

    K-PAX virtually becomes a two-character film -- a mighty talky one with an utterly banal ending.

    It's pure pleasure to witness Kevin Spacey commanding the screen, and Jeff Bridges ain't exactly a rank amateur.

    Name user

    Its conflict is so understated, and takes so long to engage us, that the film is as flat as a stretch of Interstate 70 east of Denver.

    Name user

    I admired how the movie tantalized us with possibilities...

    Here [Spacey's] so good, and so compulsively watchable, that the producers never had to spend a dime on a spaceship.

    Name user

    Entertaining for so long it's a downer to sit through the dumbed-down finale.

    It's hard to see how K-PAX could be made any better than it is.

    Name user

    K-PAX is clearly a showcase for Kevin Spacey, who has actually won two Oscars (including one for his supporting role in The Usual Suspects) and who really ought to know better.

    Name user

    A draggy, earnest exercise in pseudo-spiritual uplift, recycling romantic hokum about extraterrestrial life and mental illness with wide-eyed sincerity.

    As billowy as a pillow.

    Name user

    Everything about K-PAX seems to have been manufactured at Have a Blessed Day, Inc.

    Name user

    If K-PAX's conclusion is a bit too glib, too pat for what it's trying to do, it's an honorable attempt to create a thoughtful entertainment, and it's got the kind of acting worth visiting from another planet to experience.

    Name user

    K-PAX never attains the soulful heights its makers obviously sought. But it's still worth a visit.

    Name user

    K-PAX succeeds most often when it isn't blinded by the light of its own cosmic message. Its creators have apparently decided to embrace that message, seizing the moment -- and full credit -- with both hands.

    Name user

    However heady the experience of Bridges' gravity and Spacey's otherworldliness, the film is a head-scratcher for anyone who would try to reconcile its narrative ambiguities.

    Name user

    Gloppy and touchy-feely.

    Name user

    I rather like the whole mystic- crystal-revelations aspect of K-PAX.

    B-
    Name user

    Inspirational and profoundly moving.

    Name user

    Spacey and Bridges are so good -- and so good together -- that they keep the options and explanations open right up to the movie's bittersweet end.

    These looney tunes from Kevin Spacey have been heard before.

    Manages to intrigue without overplotting and uplift without overmanipulating.
