Two Weeks Reviews

March 6, 2008
Sally Field gives a brave and convincing portrayal of a woman facing death. It's a heartbreaking performance and Field attacks the mental and physical pain facing Anita with veracity.

offers a little too much dysfunction and not enough humor for my tastes

TWO WEEKS offers some positive views on hospice care and tackles head-on a theme that few American features do, but it lacks the gravitas of something like the European drama THE DEATH OF MR. LAZARESCU.

April 3, 2007
An awkward hybrid of earnest weepiness and bouncy lightheartedness.
March 16, 2007
Field looks appropriately wiped out. Although given how brittle, awkward, and completely uninteresting her younger co stars are, she could just be exasperated -- she's doing all the lifting.

You will have to like Sally Field, you will have to really like Sally Field, to sit through Two Weeks.

The movie's warm advocacy of hospice, with all the dignity such end-of-life care provides, does real, influential good.

March 3, 2007
A sentimental weepie about coping with death that tries to mix laughter and tears but induces only groans.

March 3, 2007
The well-intentioned screenplay is all over the map, with many scenes too truncated to go anywhere dramatically or emotionally. Is a cancer movie that leaves you dry-eyed an oxymoron?

Sally Field's flawless performance as a mother whose imminent death reunites her four grown children elevates a fairly formulaic melodrama... into something considerably more memorable.

There is much to like in this poignant movie about those who leave this life and those left behind, but Two Weeks never quite pulls everything off.

Attempts at black humor, although not unrealistic during such a trying time, fall flat. Far worse than not laughing at the jokes, you're unlikely to be moved to tears at sad moments.

Overall, TV veteran Stockman isn't terribly skillful at meshing comedy and drama.

In his uneven drama Two Weeks, first-time feature director Steve Stockman bravely delves into the ugly realities of dying. Unfortunately, he has no idea where to go from there.

March 2, 2007
Although quite touching and stitched with black humor, little of what transpires feels like it's happening to particular people at a particular time in a particular place.

March 1, 2007
... the understatement of the awkward family dynamics and complex feelings... has a quiet honesty and unsentimental dignity of its own.

For all the vomiting and the runny noses, Two Weeks feels a little too cozy to fully pass muster as art.

March 1, 2007
A smoothly directed story that shows without sentiment how life, for better or worse, goes on.
February 27, 2007
There are worse things than death to look forward to, like having to sit through The Barbarian Invasions a second time.
