Nearly every step the movie makes feels completely random, with no payoff.

Thank your lucky stars I had to see Gil Cates Jr.'s darkly comic misfire early enough to warn you against wasting your own time and money.

Mr. Hanks performs with customary blankness and a woeful lack of chemistry with his hardworking co-star.

The concept, perilously high, is further overloaded by performances that are perilously broad, particularly from Graynor and an ill-used Ann-Margret as Ben's mother.

It gets bogged down in slo-mo indie quirk when it should be faster, more in our face.

Drama cannot live on wobbly metaphors alone, and the untenable roles are played without charisma.
