This film was not that bad as I had expected by looking at the stupid critics reviews. I enjoyed everyone's performance. The main thing it lacked was a good story I mean I know it was heavily inspired by true events but the execution could have been way better. The kid was annoying as shit and I wanted to a fly kick to his face. But pine and banks are what worked really well together. Overall from pine to banks this is a very good film and would recommend if you wanna feel like "Awwww" at the end or show it to your girlfriend so you can sleep afterwards...

A smart screenplay, great acting from all around, and some warm cinematography all can be found in Alex Kurtzman's impressive debut.

Good movie with actual real life stories...
However, it was a bit slow and dragging at times.

Drivel. It had the potential to be a better film, but it became too drawn out, too spoon-fed, too "Hollywood."

A movie based on a true story about an estranged family that comes together after their father passes away. Although he doesn't appear in the movie, his presence in their hearts is shown throughout the movie. The plot is thin, the characters are a hit with a great cast. The movie is a bit too long but good to watch once.

A well-intentioned soap opera. But a soap opera nonetheless.

Not the most original story but pretty well done. Definitely one that tugs at the old heart strings.

Meḷ̣̣̣̣ meḷ everywhere. At least it's got Chris Pine's fiiiiiiiine fine face on it.

The thing that impressed me about this one was how a-typical the story was. It was refreshing to watch a movie dealing with family first, and romance as a subplot, almost an afterthought. The problem though is that this is way too long and slowly paced. There were multiple things that could have been cut. However, what kept me watching was the acting. I think it's some of the best work I've seen Elizabeth Banks do. Michelle Pfeiffer was also a powerhouse as the widow. Throw in Chris Pine and Olivia Wilde throwing in strong performances as well (even with Wilde only being in a fraction of the movie) and it kept me watching all the way until the end. Which speaking of the ending, was so gratifying I actually teared up. So, even though it takes a bit to get through, I thought it was worth it.

1. If you like something because you think other people are gonna like it, it's a sure bet no one
2. Most doors in the world are closed, so if you find one you want to get into: you damn well better
have an interesting knock.
3. Everything you think is important, isn't. And everything you think is unimportant, is.
4. Don't shit where you eat.
5. Lean into it: the outcome doesn't matter. What matters is that you're there for it.
6. Never sleep with someone who has more problems than you do.

It's always a treat for me to watch Michelle Pfeiffer sine she's one of my favorite actresses of all time. This definitely was a different Chris Pine film from what I'm used to seeing him in. I love Elizabeth Banks (as Effie in the Hunger Games), and she's delivered a pretty cool performance in this one; although, it does get a bit weird in the end when she tried to hook up with Pine's character...*cringe* but other than that, they played well off of each other-- they had good on-screen chemistry. But the real highlight of the film was the great. The kid, Josh (played by Michael Hall D'Addario), he reminds me of a smaller version of actor Paul Dano and was equally as talented. Overall, this was a good film interesting plot, well acted and good resolution. Definitely a good choice to watch this film at least once.
