From a generally kind review of Avatar by Chris Hewitt-
As he proved with "Titanic" and his graceless Oscar acceptance speeches, Cameron is a better director than writer. There are some cringe-worthy moments and a general lack of humor in the "Avatar" script. Plus, I'm always suspicious of people like Cameron, who probably lives in a mansion with hot-and-cold running champagne, telling me that I need to appreciate the simple things in life. (How about this, Jim: I'll reduce my carbon footprint when you stop acquiring a new wife every five years.)
