Is It Any Good?

Well-intentioned and at times inspired, KABLUEY is too slight to make any lasting impression. The script, written by Prendergast, who also directs and stars, clearly shows ambition. But the setup is far too thin to sustain the movie, despite the presence of Kudrow and a strong supporting cast that includes Teri Garr, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Christine Taylor. It's beautifully filmed -- scenes in which a costumed Salman stomps through arid fields scream of the drudgery of life -- but a little too film-school; it definitely has more style than substance. Nevertheless, Kudrow is strong (though this is more of the same from her) and Prendergast is clearly talented.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
