9. 'The Odd Life of Timothy Green'

The best thing about this insulting, disingenuous adoption story is that writer-director Peter Hedges' father emailed me to assert that his son is "a conscientious and successful professional as well as a good father and husband and son." I'm sure he is. That doesn't mean he didn't deliver a film with no interest in actual family dynamics, only a phony fantasy that gets totally creepy when ten-year-old Timothy sketches his mom's boss (Dianne Wiest). Really, though, the movie's one uncomfortably misguided moment after another. Click here for our full review
