Nim's Island
A young girl lives with her dad on a remote island in the South Pacific. She yearns for adventure. One day, dad gets stranded out to sea, leaving her all alone. She manages to make contact with a famous adventure author, who decides to overcome her psychological hangups and come to the rescue. There are some baddies as well, and our little heroine defends her island in true ''home alone'' style.

eye Weekly
Philip Brown quote iconThe filmmakers and actors almost seem conscious of the bad script and are constantly trying to overcompensate. Foster does a reasonable job of finding the right level of manic for her character, but everyone else in the cast struggles to bring their cartoon caricatures to life and helplessly mug for the camera.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThe central problem with Nim's Island is that little happens and the character who is changed by the experience is not the lead. There's nothing especially wrong with Nim's Island, but there's not a lot right about it either.

ScreenIt
quote iconWhile Nim's Island is easy enough to watch (although one's enjoyment of it will likely be inversely proportional to their age), I just kept wishing it was more adventurous, magical and imaginative.
