Competently executed and entertaining, chiefly due to the first-rate performances of stars Cage and MacLaine.

September 19, 2008
Straightforward but enjoyable comedy that sees Cage and MacLaine going at it hammer and tongs -- although not in that sense.

Speaks to the universal human yearning for someone to watch over us.
June 16, 2003
So-so sitcom-like star comedy.
| Original Score: 3/5

Mr. Cage, once again sounding mock-suave and Elvisy, makes the most of his character's fragile cool.

A chance to watch two great actors shine in rich, funny, real roles.

When you get down to it, this film ain't much more than a corny melodrama. Still, it's a really involving, deeply sweet film that just makes you feel good.

MacLaine and Cage are really very good here.

Like the role itself, Cage is clearly in service here to a fabled but fading star, and he seldom slips on that second banana.

What counts is the comic tension between MacLaine and Cage. It's so well done, it doesn't matter how dumb things get.

There are lots of laughs in this picture, and though at one point he teeters perilously on the brink of mush and gush, Wilson manages to regain his gently caustic comic footing.

Enough cannot be said about Cage and MacLaine's performances and their obvious chemistry together -- and it's fair to say that they more than make up for the film's lapses.

We have seen it before: The movie throws together two individuals (Shirley Maclaine and Nicolas Cage) who could not have been more different and then shows us how they learn to respect each other.
