Given the inherent limitations of the material, all of the actors work diligently and quite effectively.
Erich Roland's HD cinematography is the only element of the film one can honestly enjoy.
Too bad the offscreen intrigue doesn't make up for what flags in Flagg.
Dana is really the heart of the movie, giving a subtle, low-key performance.
Miller's affection for the Purdys... and their rustic way of life can't compensate for the script's clunky pacing and occasional moralizing.
Crusty characters, a bluegrass soundtrack and a dysfunctional family that could exist only in the minds of Hollywood screenwriters make this film more precious than real -- or funny.
Alan Arkin has the enviable ability of making nearly everything he's in watchable. Sadly, Raising Flagg sorely tests that ability.
Feels like a TV movie.
Has some fine moments for Alan Arkin and his ex-wife Barbara Dana, but its bloated inconsequentiality is simply head-shaking.
Some of the characters' problems are wrapped up a bit too neatly, but the mild contrivances work because the principles are so endearing -- we want them to be happy, so when they are, it's satisfying, even if the happy moments aren't so honestly achieved.
The story is fairly slight and some of the characters are broadly drawn or not sketched at all.
Alan Arkin tries, but fails, as the gold standard curmudgeon who never had it so good.
