We gave it a B-

K-PAX is a mystical, twistical drama in the ”One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” tradition of romanticizing the saintly insane. Kevin Spacey stars as a fellow who’s either seriously disturbed or else seriously from another planet; the actor squanders his big, complex talent on a movie-safe character who’s a walking morality lesson. Jeff Bridges smiles benignly as a psychiatrist beguiled and bothered by his new, diagnosis-resistant patient.
