Unexpectedly sharp, light and appealing; a testament to Hunt's skills behind the camera.

September 19, 2008
Unendurable American middle-aged whingeing.
September 19, 2008
All in all, not quite as good as it gets.
September 19, 2008
This is not without its attractions - an occasionally waspishly witty script and some unexpected dramatic tangents - but the characters never seem more than a casually bagged collection of tics and mannerisms.
September 19, 2008
It's a glum and amateurish business on the three-in-one subject of adoption - being adopted, having your child adopted, and adopting one.
