Perhaps the late Blake Edwards could have found a balance between slapstick and psychodrama, but Ron Howard can't get the pacing right, and Allan Loeb's script is even wordier than the one he wrote for Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
Pacing was the main problem I had as well. It felt like it was just too much heavy drama for a long period of time. It just didn't shift in and out of the drama and comedy quickly enough to work.
