A Piece of Eden
Provided by Metacritic.com
John Hancock must be the best filmmaker working in LaPorte County, Ind.
New York Post
It is hard to dislike such a wholesome, well-meaning movie, which has some very funny moments and a lovable cast.
New York Daily News
All the full-blown wackiness turns a rather sweet movie into one that's decidedly overripe.
In an era when cynicism so often passes for insight, a movie as decent, well-intentioned and good-hearted as A Piece of Eden can't easily be dismissed.
The kind of heartwarming, well-intentioned film many audiences claim they want to see at their local theaters.
TV Guide Magazine
A modest but well-done film with a little something for everyone.
It's a film in which nothing is at stake, that's safe and sentimental to the core.
Has the enthusiasm and naivete of a first feature.
Its tone is as disjointed as if this were a first effort.
Mushy and musty itself, A Piece of Eden takes an eternity...this time to cheat and shortcut its way to lesser Frank Capra moments without the gritty touch of, say, a Garry Marshall.
