[A] remarkably accomplished indie movie ...
Visually dreary and not especially illuminating, Duane Hopwood can't quite get where it must have wanted to go.
... this downbeat indie drama gives the leads a few excellent scenes together, and they acquit themselves credibly. But there's also a fair amount of wilted comedy from the stock supporting characters ...
[The film is] suffused with hangdog dreariness, equivalent to a unsoled shoe treading rainwater.
It's just very authentic, very real. Everything that happens here you believe it.
It's a mixed but basically likable little indie picture.
Duane Hopwood digs into the soul of its title character with a patience rarely found in contemporary films.
Schwimmer demonstra uma enorme sensibilidade ao evitar qualquer tipo de exagero ou caricatura ao viver seu personagem alcoólatra, retratando-o como um homem triste e gentil que não enxerga o próprio vício.
A mellow-yet-effective character study that exhibits some real poignancy and delivers a stunningly good performance by Friends star David Schwimmer.
Duane Hopwood is a crock from beginning to end.
Anthony is as upbeat as Duane is down. The character works so well as a counterpoint, you wish the film would abandon Duane altogether and follow Anthony on his moronic misadventures.
Surprisingly amiable for all its bleak tidings.

David Schwimmer stars as Duane Hopwood, a down-on-his-luck divorced father who works the night shift as a pit boss at Caesars Palace in Atlantic City. Heartsick about the demise of his marriage to Linda (Janeane Garofolo), Duane does nothing much in his daily life but work and drink. When his visitation rights are threatened after he's caught driving while intoxicated with his daughter in the backseat, Duane confronts the realization that the time has come to get his life back on track before he loses everything.
There are a lot of mixed reviews on this movie. I happened to like it. I wouldn't say enjoy, cause the movie is depressing and sad. But David Schwimmer is really, really, really good in this movie. He blew me away with his performance. First movie I have ever seen him in, and I will admit I was afraid I couldn't separate him from his character 'Ross' from the t.v. show 'Friends'. But there was no "Ross" in his performance. He was great. It's a very real, raw, and honest movie. Definitely not your feel good type movie. But one that will have you sympathizing with the characters, or even relating to them. The ending is bitter sweet. This story might touch home for a lot of people. It's a well done movie and I hope more people see it.
A good movie.
