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.
The disappointment of what this movie could have been dogs it as it navigates safe, predictable roads to a preordained conclusion.

Two movies in one: one relatable and witty, the other dry and distancing. The second undermines the first.
