Agrelo clumsily attempts to play jaunty larkiness against somber situations. full review

Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

Alba certainly tries her best at portraying not just a beauty but also a beautiful mind, yet very few things add up despite director Marilyn Agrelo's efforts. full review

Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News

Cuter than a basket of puppies licking a litter of kittens, "An Invisible Sign" is an excruciatingly whimsical collision of adult themes and kid-friendly aesthetic. full review

Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

What's the sign for boredom? full review

Lou Lumenick, New York Post

Offhandedly charming, if a bit labored in its eccentricity. full review

John Anderson, Variety

When an errant ax lands in Alba's thigh, the film goes from inept to kind of brilliantly bad; it's a teachable moment, though lessons learned may vary. full review

Eric Hynes, Time Out New York

Jessica Alba gets plain-Jane crazy for An Invisible Sign, a syrupy A Beautiful Mind redux. full review
