Schaeffer's voice represents the Average Joe in a bar who thinks he has all the answers about the human condition but has nothing interesting to say. Yet, he keeps talking.

In the crass, endless Mind the Gap, Schaeffer dares to ape Magnolia, telling five barely connected stories with all the grace of a juggler tossing open bottles of Drano.
September 24, 2004
Schaeffer, known for the quirky romantic comedies, goes a more serious route in this disappointing anthology of stories about love and forgiveness.

November 1, 2004
An overly ambitious, overly complex and overly long opus that bites off more than it can chew.
December 16, 2004
The coincidences are almost all supremely transparent and the characters gratingly quirky, two faults that committed acting almost redeems. But not quite.

November 4, 2004
There are a couple of affecting moments here and there, but they are lost amid more than two snail-paced hours of often maudlin tedium.

It's moving, poignant, funny, and charming. Best of all, the characters get the closure they need and when they find renewed hope, it lifts your spirits.

September 11, 2004
Despite its flaws, Mind the Gap comes together as a beautiful portrait of seemingly unrelated ties that lead to important shifts in the lives of total strangers.

Eric Schaeffer takes a stab at the intertwined-lives ensemble-cast film.

Formulaic but surprisingly affecting.

November 4, 2004
Warm-hearted but clear-eyed indie effort richly repays audience patience during deliberately paced and provocatively allusive early scenes with a cumulative emotional impact that is immensely satisfying.
November 29, 2004
The performances are solid, even when the roles are aggressively whimsical.
