Nearly every step the movie makes feels completely random, with no payoff.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
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.
| Original Score: 2/5
Mr. Hanks performs with customary blankness and a woeful lack of chemistry with his hardworking co-star.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Nothing is bleaker than failed black comedy, which this is.
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.
| Original Score: B-
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.
