I'm pretty sure it doesn't get more depressing than this.

I see no reason, apart from chronic yuppie passive-aggression, why Dave shouldn't get over himself and wipe that giant 'L' off his forehead.

The movie blows all over the place, too, as its meandering plotlines do flesh out this portrait of a success who believes himself a failure, but never expands any further.

I'll save you a couple of hours and tell you its message: Life can be a bummer. Deal with it.

Slant Magazine

Disingenuously conveys the fickleness of day-to-day existence via a monsoon of profane, contrived moroseness.

Kam Williams
Upstage Magazine

Narrated by Nic Cage in a zombie-like monotone, this flick is not only gross and morose, but relentlessly depressing.

Free-floating depression and the mocking of a twelve-year old for comedic relief.

This fainthearted bid at social satire stars Nicolas Cage as a middle-aged man gazing into the yawning void of his life.

A vague hint at spiritual rebirth in the closing seconds does nothing to wash away the acid taste of this character, and he's all there is to the movie.

If you've never heard of a "living funeral," this film is an icy introduction.

Like the chilly winds that blow throughout it, The Weather Man is cold, grim, erratic and eventually just relentless.

Yet another retread of Cage's weak formula of a gloomy man examining his life.

A bleak, messy midlife crisis drama as unsure of itself as a weather forecast.

Unlike the arrows Dave uses for his archery hobby, the movie never quite hits whatever target it's aiming for.

We get a vague movie that a few successful but chronically dissatisfied men will be able to call their own. The rest of us will see the film for what it is: a long, cold mumble from the heart.
