light and relevant road comedy movie dealing with the difficulties faced by the Veterans coming home. This topic is never handled in a funny way by the director, but rather with full admiration, so that an happy ending is almost desirable, but the actual ending is kinda poor and it made me knit my brows.

Couldn't really get into this pretty standard road-trip, returning-from-war drama. The episodic nature doesn't really help things, but neither does an unconvincing performance from Rachel McAdams, and a bored-looking Tim Robbins.

I'm a Tim Robbins fan anyway, but the rest of the cast was great too. I enjoyed this movie.

Holy contrived Batman.

Yet another movie where War Veterns are trying to find themselves...good performance by Tim Robbins, but I don't buy Rachel McAdams's character one can one person be so fucking naive.

thought that this would be a movie about ptsd & reverse culture shock, but it ended up being a pretty good black comedy about the very real challenges of the enlisted back on home ground, when their spider-silk-thin grounding is tested to its limits.

rather peppered with contrived situations, but i felt the riot of their emotional roller-coasters and empathy for their struggles.

Splendid, astonishing performances by the 3 lead actors. Well-told story.

The public's ahead of the critics on this one. This is a good movie. I think some fall releases get dumped on because they aren't Oscar-worthy, so they get dismissed the way this one did, but it's a fine movie in its own right with sharp performances by three likeable leads.

Good idea (war vs money, family vs friendship) and awesome actor Rachel McAdams.

How sad that this wonderful movie should have received such a panning by the critics. This is a really good "road trip" movie and some of the best characterisations I've seen in ages and I didn't want it to end. Rachel McAdams definitely walks away with honours in her role as Colee. Don't believe the critics, this is a very underrated movie!
