The heartwarming love story of a boy and his teddy, the one who won’t grow up and the other mature beyond his species. Oh, and there’s also Mila Kunis as the woman who comes between them. The other character is Boston, the city of Dennis Lehane, the Afflecks and the Farrelly Brothers, with homages like the French Connection car chase and the Fenway Park showdown. I laughed from the great opening scene – how children in Boston traditionally celebrate Christmas – and had tears running down my cheeks by the end. There were a few misfires – mainly the whole Norah Jones bit – but otherwise the pacing and tone were pitch-perfect. Only a curmudgeon or a jaded movie critic wouldn’t enjoy this film.
