Makes a conscious decision to address a subject that not many family films would touch with a ten-foot pole…then bungles the implications and the message.
"Mary" is more mediocre than bad but there’s nothing here to catch the attention of anyone serious about their horror.
Occupies a curious middle ground between philosophical arthouse movie and Easter-themed faith film.

By failing to embrace the absurdity of the situation, the movie sets itself up as just another summer blockbuster-of-the-week.
"Midnight Madness" probably lives in the memories of some as an engagingly dumb slice of ‘80s moviedom and it’s better left there.
It’s unlikely that watching this film will become the next great holiday tradition.
"The Midwife" has two things (and only two things) going for it: Catherine Frot and Catherine Deneuve.
An awkward and unappealing mix of mismatched parts that doesn’t generate enough laughs to make it feel like anything other than a waste of 90 minutes.
With two better versions of this story readily available, why bother with this mediocre re-telling?
