It could be the fact that everybody looks impossibly clean and shiny all the time that makes viewing this feel-good film akin to binge-watching a late nineties sitcom, albeit one with plenty of money to burn on production value. Nearly two hours of earnest paint by numbers plot devices leading to more paint by numbers plot devices caused me to, well, Wonder, if it couldn’t have benefitted from a little chaos and grit.

It's a very tasteful heart-tugger - a drama of disarmingly level-headed empathy that glides along with wit, assurance, and grace, and has something touching and resonant to say about the current climate of American bullying.

"Wonder" is that rare thing, a family picture that moves and amuses while never overtly pandering.

It is a film with all the depth of a fridge magnet.

I respected Wonder immensely. It's an old-fashioned three-hankie sob fest with sassy kids, catchy songs, kind adults and a cute dog.

If you think you will make it through even the trailer without welling up with tears, well of course you won't. Wonder is just that kind of story.

Though its upbeat earnestness is ever-present, it has the integrity to understand that not even kindness can eliminate all problems.
