Critic Reviews for Checking Out
This Borscht Belt version of King Lear, recently given a limited theatrical release, will find its true home on video and cable.
Funny is funny, and there's no denying that much of Checking Out is agreeably entertaining in a Neil Simon Lite fashion.
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.
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.
A lame comedy full of wooden acting, schmaltz, clichés and racial stereotypes.
