Owen Gleiberman from Entertainment Weekly gave it another C-. He stated, “The surreal thing is, Zac Efron can’t do despair. He plays it by staring. Blankly. And by not smiling. Blankly.” Sean O’Connell from Filmcritic.com gave it a bad D rating. He said, “Its heart always seems to be in the right place. Its brain, unfortunately, is always somewhere else.”
Kirk Honeycutt from the Hollywood Reporter gave it a D. He said, “An unstable mix of youth romance, metaphysical idealism and tropes that seemingly belong in a horror film.” Betsy Sharkey from the Los Angeles Times gave it a C. She stated, “Zac Efron shows promise as an actor. But director Burr Steers fails to fully embrace the film’s weepy potential.”
A.O. Scott at the New York Times gave it a C rating. He said, “You are not, in a movie like this, supposed to think too much; you are supposed to be transported beyond skepticism on a wave of pure, tacky feeling. Instead, in this case, you drown in sentimental, ghoulish nonsense.”
James Berardinelli at Reelviews gave it a C-. He said, “The screenplay for Charlie St. Cloud is so full of cheats and inconsistencies that they pour from the screen.” Peter Travers at Rolling Stone gave it a D. He stated, “Some bad movies should carry a leper’s bell to warn off ticket buyers.”
