ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN, THE cover image Click to play video trailer
This is a great movie! I liked it because the theme was to love yourself no matter what, even if you are different. This movie is about a couple (played by Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton) that want a child but can't have one. One night they buried a box that had all of the things that they want their child to be like. Later that night a boy named Timothy (played by CJ Adams) comes out of the garden and changes the couples life forever. My favorite part of the movie was at the end when a little girl from the adoption center comes running up to the couple and when walking into their house she is holding there hand and they are so happy to have a real child -forever! I feel like they are meant to have a kid by the way they treat Timothy the minute they see him. Jennifer Garner, in this film plays Cindy Green. She is a very nice lady and is very loving to Timothy. She is a motherly person and you can tell she is meant to be a mother. Joel Edgerton, plays Jim Green in this movie. He is also very loving and really wants a kid. He would be a person who helps their child go through hard times and shows them how to deal with it. CJ Adams plays a really important part in this movie as Timothy. Timothy is a great fun loving kid who loves meeting people. I admire how he is not afraid of anything. I would give The Odd Life of Timothy Green 5 out of 5 stars - it was so good! The movie will make you laugh, cry and feel all happy inside. I would recommend ages 10 all the way to and adult because this isn't just for kids it is for anyone! You will find adults and kids in the theater, so the ages are all over the place. Even teens will like this movie! Find this movie at a theater near you on august 15, 2012.

The main story of this movie is about love, and I love this movie and can't wait to watch it again. Joel Edgerton and Jennifer Garner play Mr. and Mrs. Green who is trying to have a baby. However, their doctor tells them there is no hope. They are so sad and wanted to move on with their lives. They name their little boy Timothy, then they listed characters that Timothy would have in pieces of paper then put it in a box and bury it so they can go on with their lives. A magical thing happened, Timothy came from the garden where they buried him. Timothy Green play by CJ Adams, is a great actor. His love for everyone is unconditional. I can see all his emotions through his eyes and his facial expression. This movie emotion is like riding a roller coaster. I am laughing and crying on the same scene. The cinematographer and production designer are awesome. The details of the town and the pencil factory are so real. The colors of the fall leaves are so vibrant. They really capture the small town America. Dianne West play a grumpy old woman is so funny with her chin hair. My favorite character is Timothy. He's always positive and wanted to give all his love to those around him. The only part I did not like is bullying part. I did not see the bullies being punish for their bad behavior. The messages of this movie are love as much as possible and never give up. I rank this movie 5 out of 5 stars. I give this age ranged 5 and up. Cheyenne Nguyen, age 10, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
