  • This Borscht Belt version of King Lear, recently given a limited theatrical release, will find its true home on video and cable.

    October 4, 2006
  • Funny is funny, and there's no denying that much of Checking Out is agreeably entertaining in a Neil Simon Lite fashion.

    September 15, 2006
  • If this is a good example of the sort of long-forgotten plays that movie producers are unearthing, maybe theater critics need to start digging those graves a little deeper.

    September 15, 2006 | Rating: 1/4
  • Only Laura San Giacomo, as Morris's lonely daughter, Flo, transcends the staginess of the premise and the creakiness of Richard Marcus's screenplay to deliver a performance that feels remotely natural.

    September 15, 2006 | Rating: 1/5
  • A lame comedy full of wooden acting, schmaltz, clichs and racial stereotypes.

    September 15, 2006 | Rating: 1/4
  • To her credit, Laura San Giacomo is actually one of the best things about a film that features Peter Falk doing his best imitation of Peter Falk.
