    An absolute amazing performance from Michael Keaton, one of the best. Well done movie. Morgan Freeman is great as well.

    Michael Keaton gives his best performance here. A deep, dark, funny, true-to-life character study about modern man's struggle with addiction in contemporary America.

    Intentionally focusses on the path to sobriety rather than deliberate entertaining. But that's ok, because too many films around this time didn't have that firm, serious approach to a given sensitive subject matter and rather chose to make money off it, for e.g.

    Pretty good movie. Though the second half of the film outside of the hospital isn't nearly as compelling, and the film as a whole is pretty formulaic, but its characters are very interesting to watch as they struggle with their vices, and the performances are solid, especially Keaton and Baker.

    I thought the first half of this movie was amazing, but then it kind of fizzled into predictability after that. One thing that was consistent was how good of a performance that Michael Keaton gave. This movie did drag on in places, but I do not regret watching it.

    Michael Keaton goes to drug rehab in this drama that falls flat in story but the performances are top notch.

    Michael Keaton is a little over the top but very entertaining as he tries to climb out of the gutter. Kathy Baker plays a more believable role in a predictable homage to recovery by the numbers. If you're in recovery yourself, you'll enjoy the commonalities you'll identify with, especially the frustrations addicts experience just trying to stay above water..

    The biggest problem with "Clean And Sober" is that it lacks the intensity that really is acquired in a "turning my life around" story. The acting is fine and all but without the heart and energy it requires it becomes depressing. You want to cheer for Daryl but you never do.

    A very confronting & realistic to the core film of an addict dealing with his demons & trying to move on to a normal functional life. There is very little of this film that is sugar coated & Michael Keaton delivers an undeniable powerhouse performances that I believe has inspired many other actors over the years. It's not an easy film to watch but it's definitely a relatable one. It's honest, raw & well made. It's an edgy film that ultimately delivers hope, a superb film.

    Hadn't seen this in a while, so it was like watching for the first time. Keaton is great in this, a mostly dramatic role with flashes of comedy. In my opinion, he's one of the most versatile actors out there. "Clean & Sober" has a strong supporting cast including the always great Morgan Freeman. Give this one a try!
