I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by it.

O arco dramático vivenciado pelo personagem de Tim Allen consegue, por vezes, comover e despertar uma identificação com o espectador. Pena que o filme, em sua insistência em se afirmar como comédia, tente criar piadas tão vazias e mal-sucedidas.
| Original Score: 2/5

Much of the running time is devoted to dramatic subplots and other such misguided attempts at pathos.

There is a definite threat behind this man's eyes.

Bearing clear marks of a film made strictly to pay the bills, its performances are phoned in and its direction is eminently average.

A cliched-filled family film with lines and situations so predictable, audiences will be left groaning rather than laughing.

An entertaining diversion and if you want a light film to just sit back and relax to, then this might just be your movie.

The sort of feeble redemption story Hollywood often palms off on the film-going public.

It has a lot of heart and offers enough amusing situations and lines to keep most viewers happy, at least the female ones.

Pure sitcom material that could easily be polished off in 30 minutes, with laugh track.

If you're sitting through this flick searching for the two or three mild chuckles, you're in for an experience akin to that old "needle in a haystack" scenario.

...viewed as something like an expanded television sitcom, the film works pretty well, but do you really want to spend any more than thirty minutes time with it?
| Original Score: 5/10

Neither abysmally bad nor truly good, this is filmmaking McDonald's-style: You know early on what you've let yourself in for and, while it's not too tasty, it's reasonably easy to digest.

Has the look and feel of an extended sitcom episode.

A cloyingly mechanical wannabe comedy in the worm-turns mode.

A movie unsure of what it wants to be: a drama about a man wrestling his personal demons or a light-entertainment vehicle for its star, Tim Allen.

While never truly funny or insightful, the movie works intermittently by digging a little deeper than you might expect.

I'd rather see a whole movie about an aging B-movie actor and forget about all the stuff with Tim Allen.
