News & Interviews for A Cool Dry Place
Critic Reviews for A Cool Dry Place
The kind of plodding, conventional fare usually reserved for TV movies.
Its heart is in the right place, but this sweet drama just doesn't build enough true drama from its slender premise. That said, it's not bad enough to merit the kind of stealth release its studio has imposed on it.
Could have been much better with slightly tighter pacing and with less drowning in sentimentalism.
Good things come in small packages
While the movie deals with the issues of single parenthood in a believable manner, director John N. Smith's handling borders on pedestrian.
Audience Reviews for A Cool Dry Place
I'm shocked people aren't amazed at the child actor. Most kids over-act, and it's very annoying. This kid was phenomenal. It's refreshing when a movie has no car chase scenes, explosions, and no one getting shot. Just real life.
Overly melodramatic at times, but much more believable than more of the loved melodramas of our time. Vince Vaughn performed brilliantly as a fully-fleshed out father. As a human drama, I found myself more impressed than disappointed.
This is one of my favorite Vince Vaughn movies. A single dad trying to be a good father to his adorable son. This is a very heart warming, cute movie.
