Concrete Playground

As a weepy and capitalised Important Tale, the film is very good and some moments stir up emotion, but it isn't the film it should be, failing to hit the heights it is so earnestly aiming for.

Switches between a few primary modes -- agenda-mentary, romance, courtroom drama, tearjerker -- without engaging very convincingly in any of them.

Lives down to expectations far too often.

Too much of "Any Day Now" founders in cliche and predictable table-turning and point-scoring instead of building a set of complicated characters at odds with a biased system.

I didn't buy anything in this mindnumbingly tedious "message" film.

Director Travis Fine gives his period details flourish and lets Cumming and Dillahunt create well-rounded characters, but "Any Day Now" winds up treacly.

A Very Special Movie approach for material that deserves nuance and patience, relying on shameless manipulation to communicate simple ideas on prejudice and parenting.

The growing community of gay parents deserves a better reflection of their struggles than a kitschy "Kramer vs. Kramer."

Straining for "teachable moments," the film has one noteworthy, unintentional function: to remind us that though LGBT rights are continually evolving, the laws of kitsch remain immutable.

The intent is righteous. The dramatic overkill is deadly.

For all its commitment and compassion, Cumming's performance always feels as embellished as his climactic torch songs.

A fearless, gripping and honest drama that sidesteps schmaltz. Alan Cumming gives the performance of his career.

Cumming is wonderful, and you know something? Trying a little understanding sure doesn't hurt.

Travis Fine's true-life story from the 1970s is as ruthless a tear-jerker as we have seen in many a year.

Though set in 1979 West Hollywood, its themes echo loudly in today's courtrooms as well through compelling characters and an unrelenting narrative.

Marco's age sidesteps conception arguments, leaving us to judge for ourselves the paths that caring people can take compared with an unfit natural parent.

It would take a heart of stone - or zero tolerance for soap - to resist Any Day Now, a full-throttle weepie about a West Hollywood gay couple trying to adopt a neglected boy with Down syndrome.
