Box Office
Sara Schieron quote iconImmersive and reverent adaptation of celebrated book club melodrama

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThe Lovely Bones is a deplorable film.
8
eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconPeter Jackson’s decision to remove the airily austere tone of Alice Sebold’s original bestseller in favour of a more phantasmagorical approach turns The Lovely Bones into something deeply unlovely.
1
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconDelicate business is being transacted as Peter Jackson, lord of the Rings fantasy, attunes himself to a family tragedy.
10
ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconWithout enough viewer emotional engagement to overcome the problems, the offering comes off as frustrating and, ultimately, quite boring.

Tomatometer quote icon It's stuffed full of Peter Jackson's typically dazzling imagery, but The Lovely Bones suffers from abrupt shifts between horrific violence and cloying sentimentality.
