Cindy and Jim Green, who can't wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. When young Timothy shows up on their doorstep one stormy night, Cindy and Jim—and their small town of Stanleyville—learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life's greatest gifts.
Drama Fantasy - Despite the Disney branding and the marketing push as a kid-
centered family fantasy, this is mostly a slow and fairly serious
drama focusing on the title character's parents. The fanciful
elements give it some pre-teen appeal, but the subject matter seems
geared more toward adults though there is hardly any potentially
objectionable content. Fans of Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton
should be pleased though other recognizable stars such as Dianne
Wiest and Common have much smaller roles.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average Mostly, The Odd Life of Timothy Green feels contrived , if undeniably sweet.
Entertainment WeeklyFull Review Average In the end, what mars 'Timothy Green' most is its middle-of-the-road approach. Its appealingly quirky, fairy-tale-like center is so coated with sugar, it cloys. It's not that 'Timothy Green' is odd, but that it isn't odd enough.
