Burns turns in a nicely understated performance; but it's David Krumholtz, as Abe, who's the backbone of the movie.

Give Edward Burns at least a little credit for perseverance, because just about any other writer-director-actor who released a movie every couple of years to critical shrugs and audience indifference would've long since hung up his megaphone.

It might be the most maturely conceived role in Burns's films, but the plot around it is flimsy, the visual storytelling simpleminded, and the general ideas for character one-note.

Burns returns to the themes he knows best: old-fashioned young men trying to figure out the world and the ways of women while forging kind of unlikely friendships.
