Eschews the simplistic animated story arc as it explores the power of imagination and innovation to overcome grief.
An intriguing blend of globetrotting neo-noir and road trip plot elements, it often seems on the cusp of greatness without ever getting there.
Wastes its premise while offering little more than a sparkling Henson performance to distract us from the underwritten screenplay.

With so much material crammed into a 110-minute motion picture, it feels rushed and unfinished.
A engaging story anchored by two powerful performances, with Glenn Close being is as ferocious as she has ever been.
A perfect example of ‘80s fantasy in every way – targeted toward children, unremarkable, and ultimately disappointing.
As fresh and side-splitting today as it was when it entered theaters during a much different era.
Functions as a time machine to take the viewer back to the days of “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” while re-introducing the man who functioned as a friend/mentor/father-figure.
Starts strongly but the qualities that make the first 20 minutes harrowing drain away and the movie morphs into an unsatisfying excursion into fantasy-tinged horror.
