You'll ... struggle to accept that what you saw on that screen actually played in theaters, was funded and approved by distributors, took a month or so of the lives of those extraordinary actors.

A strenuously uplifting Christmas awards-bait tearjerker.

The five stages of grief sometimes seem applicable to movie reviewing, except that I usually skip denial, rarely get around to acceptance and generally just settle into anger, which is where I am with "Collateral Beauty."

At the end of it, I screamed the way polar bears are supposed to when they get their tongues frozen to the ice.

This saccharine, manipulative, cynical, brain-dead and virtually inhuman enterprise should be shown down the ages as a terrible example of just how much can still go wrong...

A movie which suggests five stages of grief requires a sixth, entitled "collective idiocy".

This movie doesn't rise to the level of so-bad-it's-good. But no less impressively, perhaps, it's just bad enough that you actually wish it were worse.

The finished movie plays ... concertedly like a Serious Acting Vehicle for Smith, who's the least interesting component in a madly over-qualified cast.

Smug, lazy and clumsily manipulative.
