Review – Bogus

A kid (Haley Joel Osment) loses his mom in a car wreck and has to go live with his mom’s childhood friend (Whoopi Goldberg), a situation complicated by the tyke’s imaginary friend, a Frenchman named Bogus (Gerard Depardieu). This raises an obvious question: is the worst thing that can happen to you as a kid a.) losing your mom in a car wreck, b.) being adopted by Whoopi Goldberg or c.) being stuck with Gerard Depardieu as an imaginary friend? Naturally this turns out to be a cliché-ridden pile of “inner child” drivel, incompetently scripted and indifferently acted. The big mistake here is betting the farm on “poignant” and then failing to pull it off. See if desperate
