I have a problem with movies about men who women cannot resist.

Mercy is a romantic drama with some good qualities -- among them earnestness and strong performances -- but not enough to completely overcome the strain of its clichés.

There's a frayed romanticism to Caan's script that belies his swaggering air of machismo; this is a man who understands the price of love, even if Johnny can't, or more probably, won't.

Caan's decision to cast real-life pals such as Jane Fonda's son Garity, McDermott and John Boyd (as a blabbering lovesick friend)--not to mention his father--makes sense, but the decision to leave out the heart of his narrative doesn't.

Scott Caan delivers a complex portrait of a womanizing bully with a cream-puff heart.

Scott Caan, of all people, playing a writer of romantic novels?

With Glenn offscreen for huge sections of the film, Mercy devolves into yet another navel-gazing drama about a glib cad redeemed by the love of a good woman.

A sentimental sitdram about whether or not a long-distance liaison between an artist and his worst critic has a fighting chance of blossoming into love.

Caan can't seem to play up his strengths. He's a raw talent who needs an editor for his scripts and a strong hand behind the camera guiding him. Mercy gives our guy neither.

Mercy looks like an Urban Outfitters catalog and plays like A Very Special Episode of Entourage, only sporadically convincing that it's taking such form to mobilize a critique of the same.

Don't let Mercy's title fool you, as there's no clemency here, from cliché or pretentiousness.

Caan's touchingly clueless longing makes Mercy stand out as an adult romantic drama that earns its hankies
