Rotten: Not only does this lowest-common denominator conclusion backfire, it insults anyone who invested their time getting involved in the whole thing.
- Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Saturday, January 1, 2000
Fresh: Losing Isaiah transcends the custody issue and finds drama in the black-white polarities that neither character can escape.
- Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle, Tuesday, June 18, 2002
A very sweet and touching movie. Extremely intense emotionally. I really didn't know who to root for... the adoptive mom or the real mom. I liked them both and felt for both.

So sad! I cried a couple times. Very good acting and a great story.
