Danny DeVito gives the most compelling performance of his career in a gripping drama about a single parent and his two sons.

The film's episodic nature tends to undermine its impetus and the final quarter seems tacked-on, almost like it belongs in some other movie. In short, it suffers from trying to do too much.
