The jazz is certainly here, but the passion is missing.

The actual story is so boring and uneventful that it's hard to care about any of this.

Pleasant enough but not exactly compelling.

Affectionate, melancholy and anchored by a well thought-out performance from Sean Penn.

A likable, lively little ditty -- one theme, some clever variations -- that never wears out its welcome.
