Wait: When you sleep with a teenager that could have an impact on your marriage?

Upsetting and bleak; a meditative exercise in ice cream, marital infidelity, DisneyWorld, statutory rape, and the Khmer Rouge.

So thick with a contrived laughability that your only recourse is to start believing that you're watching a comedy.

Good actors stuck in a clunky disjointed mess of a movie. You never really understand who these people are so the stupid and irrational things the script has them do make no impact on the viewer.
