Ultimately, the material is much too delicate and screams out for a precise concentration that's beyond the professionals gathered here. And let's be honest, the material also could've benefitted from 100% less chicken costumes.

Drama about Walter who is a professional wrestler. He returns home to console his mother and niece as his twin sister has been brutally raped and murdered. In a victims' support group he meets a mature women. Her husband was murdered and her deaf son has anger issues. They both help each other through their pain and issues. Good cast. Sad content.

It has been awhile since a movie bummed me out as much as this did. Dare I say, I was kind of looking forward to this one. Yeah, Ashton Kutcher is no great actor, but he plays a certain type of character well, and quite a few of his have made it to my "guilty pleasure" list (Butterfly Effect, Just Married, What happens in vegas. Not to mention being a fan of That 70's Show). This one however, while not technically a bad movie, was just depressing. Ashton acts will all the conviction of a chunk of wood here and the whole thing just falls flat. Even Michelle Pfeiffer, normally a good actress, is unmoving. While I had pity for both their characters, and understood that a film about dealing with death was never going to be a laugh fest, I just never expected it to be quite this bleak. I can't even say why it bummed me out that much. Sure it was bad, but it wasn't that bad, and I've seen films where way worse things happened yet still walked away uplifted or at least moved in some way.
