Bone Temperature

By Chase Kahn

Variety's Todd McCarthy has just panned Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones - due for platform release starting in December - marking the first major U.S. review for the highly anticipated and awards-season heavyweight adaptation of Alice Sebold's bestselling novel.

"Peter Jackson's infatuation with with fancy visual effects mortally wounds The Lovely Bones...it rates as a significant artistic disappointment."

This pretty much confirms that the murmurs of Bones not being up to snuff have some added weight to them, although TIME's Richard Corliss (a bit of an unreliable pushover) feels otherwise and generally enthused.
