THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN

A childless couple (Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton) decide to put all of their wishes for their ideal son into a box and bury it in the backyard, only to find that an actual human child has sprouted. We're sort of hoping this turns out to be a supernatural thriller, but Disney's name attached to the title makes us think we'll be disappointed.
