Reel Movie Reviews: Nim's Island
A comedic adventure starring Jodie Foster? Yes, that sums up Nim's Island.

Should you go see this departure for Foster? It also stars Gerard Butler ad Abigail Breslin. Here's how a few movie critics have graded the film...

- The worst movie of Jodie Foster's adult career, Nim's Island is as big a mess as you might expect from a movie with four credited writers (which means there were probably more) and two directors, all at apparent cross-purposes. -- Jam! Movies

- Nim's Island is a pleasant-enough jaunt for a family outing, but it never fully arrives at that 'perfect, secret world.' -- Houston Chronicle

- Its characters, especially the youngest one, are engaging, and few adults are immune to childhood fantasies about secluded tropical isles. -- The Hollywood Reporter

- Audiences may find early scenes of father-daughter family life more engaging than the adventures that ensue, but this is a fairly successful attempt at a preteen-friendly entertainment. -- Christian Science Monitor
