News & Interviews for Just Before I Go
Critic Reviews for Just Before I Go
Anchored by a nicely understated performance by Seann William Scott, "Just Before I Go" effectively juggles a wealth of genuine, at times profound, emotion with quite a bit of nutty-raunchy humor.
Lurches along a wobbly line between salacious comic nastiness and nauseating sentimentality.
Courteney Cox's misbegotten project is a comedy-drama that, to Cox's credit, doesn't feel at all like a TV sitcom. The former "Friends" star clearly wanted something special, but sadly the result is ... this.
Courteney Cox's directorial debut "Just Before I Go" is a "Garden State" retread in which filthy jokes gradually cede ground to sentimental slush.
Audience Reviews for Just Before I Go
The low critic scores for this film are not deserved, in my opinion. "Just Before I Go" is a completely serviceable rom-com, competently acted and pleasantly entertaining. I see neither ineptitude in the director, nor inordinate raunchiness in the telling (despite a chronically masturbating character!). The film is not clever or innovative, but it also is not bad. I disagree with those who propose "Just Before I Go" has the potential to become a cult classic because there isn't anything truly unique, edgy or shocking about it. It's just a nice film with some off-color humor that tries but comes up short in addressing some serious issues. If I had paid $12 for a ticket to see this film at the theater on date night, I would feel I had gotten my money's worth and exactly what I expected.
