Good to see Justin Timberlake with another good role since trouble with the curve, In time, friends with benefits.. he’s a good actor/singer. I loved the bond between palmer and sam, it was a nice film and it’s a shame that kids are brought up with parents like that in reality and the system is fucked.

I completely forgot JT even acted, but this was a pretty solid performance. The film reminded me a lot of Gifted with Chris Evans and McKenna Grace because of the similar dynamic between the two main characters. Overall, this one has a very simple plot with a few timely issues at the heart of the story. Not outstanding, but worth a watch.

Spectacularly good. Timberlake is just shining in this and Ryder Allen's performance is nothing short of amazing, one to look out for in the future for sure.

“Palmer” is the type of conventional, formulaic movie that’s designed for audiences who don’t appreciate surprises. This redemption story about an ex-con who bonds with a misfit kid follows a tried-and-true blueprint that’s predictable and saccharine sweet, but the film has an honorable me More

Overwrought, melodramatic, predictable, corny, _Palmer_ has every single cliche of the small town drama. If you suspect you've seen this movie just by watching the trailer, let me confirm - you've seen it. In the first 20 minutes, you can easily figured out how everything is going to More
