    The New York TimesStephen Holden

    The major miscalculation in Wonderful World is the presence of a dream figure, known as the Man (Philip Baker Hall)...he throws this delicate, intelligent film, which at its best suggests a muted hybrid of “The Visitor” and “It’s a Wonderful Life,” off balance.

    Tales of cynical curmudgeons rediscovering their humanity have long been a cinematic staple, but Wonderful World brings a refreshing lack of sentimentality to its take.

    It's all very sincere, but watching a dweebish depressive learn that Life Is Good is a lesson of diminishing returns.

    Wonderful World feels like a modern-day half-baked riff on Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."
