Beatty and Schreiber generate a convincing camaraderie that is warm and touching yet with a refreshing lack of sticky sentiment.

A breath of fresh air, and an antidote to all the mindless drivel Hollywood churns out on a regular basis.

The performances are all fine and heartfelt, but the story itself never provides much reason for us to care.

Beatty and Schreiber give accomplished performances, but are handicapped by the staginess of the script and the static nature of Gilroy's direction.
