January 10, 2012
This is a story about two "different" kids, Max (Elden Henson) and Kevin (Kieran Culkin), also known as "Freak", a crippled child, who form an unlikely friendship.

The Skeleton Key

I think this film should’ve used that skeleton key to unlock a formula for a good script because it is terrible. There was nothing thrilling or horrific about it, which would’ve been a great cure to my boredom. I do have to credit the movie for the interesting twist at the end, but then [...]

The film also shows a reverence for God, with the lead characters praying and attending [...]

Every time I watch it I laugh and cry right along with the great story of abandon, betrayal, and a little Parrot who steals the hearts of everyone he meets. Paulie starts his life - and his adventures - in the home of a beautiful little girl with a [...]
