Perhaps the “Wonder” in "Wonder Wheel" is that anyone agreed to produce something so tired, joyless, and uninspired.
From its imagination-tinged opening to its Kumbaya ending, "Wonder" never forgets that its mission is to provide a non-threatening, warm-and-fuzzy experience.
An evocative movie with a vaguely disappointing narrative that doesn’t justify the patience viewers must exhibit.
There’s always a place for good acting, clever dialogue, and a sense of humor, even if the narrative teeters between incidental and irrelevant.
The disappointment of what this movie could have been dogs it as it navigates safe, predictable roads to a preordained conclusion.

"Why Him?" contains its share of effective humor but suffers from malaises that infect many modern comedies.
The lack of dynamism and depth in the characters hamstrings this production.
