Rating: 2/5 -- '"Bringing Up Bobby" is hardly an auspicious debut for Janssen as a director, but, at the same time, there's enough there to suggest that a next attempt would be worthy of investigation... Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- Just an extended dramatization of the 1980s anti-drug PSA that memorably cautioned "I learned it by watching you!" Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Ms. Jovovich displays such a keen awareness of her strengths that she brings out magical elements I never believed possible. Full Review

The script, by first-time director Famke Janssen, condescends to the heartland, and minor roles collapse to stereotype. Full Review

Rating: 4.5/5 -- Bringing Up Bobby is strongly recommended for both young teens and adults. It is a film that will help all of us survive and move on, in the beautiful yet uncomfortable world of our own making. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- [Its] downfall was ensured by a leading lady who will always be more credible chasing zombies than the American dream.

Rating: C- -- Bringing Up Bobby centers around a mugging performance by Jovovich, who can't ground the film's attempts to tie together sentiments from Paper Moon and Miss Saigon. Full Review

Product Description:

A European con artist attempts to give her ten-year-old son a stable upbringing in Oklahoma, but finds her efforts leading to disaster when her shady past finally catches up with her. Thanks to her talent for grifting, Olive (Milla Jovovich) has never stayed in one place for very long. But after her son Bobby (Spencer List) is born, she attempts to settle down in Oklahoma. Unfortunately, when Bobby's erratic behavior catches the attention of their conservative neighbors, Olive's carefully constructed façade begins to crack. Later, after an accident involving Bobby and prominent local businessman Kent (Bill Pullman), the truth about Olive's past finally comes out, forcing her to make the most difficult decision of her entire life.
