Film Threat

December 6, 2005

It's moving, poignant, funny, and charming. Best of all, the characters get the closure they need and when they find renewed hope, it lifts your spirits.

The performances are solid, even when the roles are aggressively whimsical.

Because the performances are so true, we believe in these people, even when they're doing unbearably wacky things.

You can see what's coming five minutes into the movie, but capable acting lends it a certain superficial charm.

Warm-hearted but clear-eyed indie effort richly repays audience patience during deliberately paced and provocatively allusive early scenes with a cumulative emotional impact that is immensely satisfying.

Formulaic but surprisingly affecting.

Eric Schaeffer takes a stab at the intertwined-lives ensemble-cast film.

Rachel Gordon

Despite its flaws, Mind the Gap comes together as a beautiful portrait of seemingly unrelated ties that lead to important shifts in the lives of total strangers.

This is a solid under-the-radar sleeper.

The coincidences are almost all supremely transparent and the characters gratingly quirky, two faults that committed acting almost redeems. But not quite.

There are a couple of affecting moments here and there, but they are lost amid more than two snail-paced hours of often maudlin tedium.

An overly ambitious, overly complex and overly long opus that bites off more than it can chew.

Schaeffer, known for the quirky romantic comedies, goes a more serious route in this disappointing anthology of stories about love and forgiveness.

Schaeffer's rip-off -- er, homage -- to Magnolia.

Ben Kenigsberg

Top Critic IconTop Critic

In the crass, endless Mind the Gap, Schaeffer dares to ape Magnolia, telling five barely connected stories with all the grace of a juggler tossing open bottles of Drano.

Schaeffer's voice represents the Average Joe in a bar who thinks he has all the answers about the human condition but has nothing interesting to say. Yet, he keeps talking.
