It's too little, too late for Crano's Wes Anderson-inflected innocence-disrupted project...

Brian Crano's very slight debut of a comedy.

Mr. Canterbury's character is a Hollywood child archetype: wan and withdrawn, all monosyllables and needy stares.

Woven amid the glib one-liners and contrived scenarios is an unexpected, and undeniably touching, sense of heart.

It's a struggle all the way for A Bag Of Hammers, though its irony-crusted heart is in the right place.

The real scam was the filmmakers tricking Rebecca Hall (and a cameoing Amanda Seyfried) into participating in this blunt instrument of an indie.

Most of it seems baffled and unclear. Some nice ideas floating around in here, but A Bag of Hammers is one of the few movies I can remember that appears to be composed mainly of outtakes.

A few striking performances-Ritter, Preston, and Canterbury are especially great-smooth out what might have been a much bumpier ride.

First-time feature helmer Brian Crano maneuvers some tricky tonal shifts with impressive ease in A Bag of Hammers, a droll, quirky comedy with a pleasant amount of heart.
