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 ...

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.
| Original Score: 4/5
May 7, 2006
A mellow-yet-effective character study that exhibits some real poignancy and delivers a stunningly good performance by Friends star David Schwimmer.

[The film is] suffused with hangdog dreariness, equivalent to a unsoled shoe treading rainwater.

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.

The movie is a wise and realistic portrait of the disease, showing the drunk not as a colorful or tragic character, but simply as a sad man whose days occasionally contain moments of joy and hope.

November 15, 2005
An unusually memorable picture of one man's bad time.
November 11, 2005
The movie is understated enough to let the emotional, and sometimes comical, story tell itself, with no over-the-top dialogue, nor worse, overacting.
November 10, 2005
A fairly dreadful melodrama drenched in self-pity.

Loaded with unoriginal ideas, weak comedic concepts, and underwhelming emotional climaxes, the movie is the definition of bland.

Writer-director Matt Mulhern confidently anchors his drama-comedy about an alcoholic Atlantic City pit boss with good writing and sharp dialogue.
