  Re: Mediocre?

I agree. There was nothing wrong with the score, but it didn't do much for me. I absolutely love Lady in the Water, and I was hoping I suppose for a similar sensawunder that simply wasn't delivered. What this score sounded like was any one of innumerable, pleasant, pretty but quickly forgettable boy-and-his-dog sort of scores. Also I was disappointed that director Jay Russell didn't reteam with his usual composer William Ross, whom I think could have crafted a fine score for this film.
