Gasping for some reassuring bit of realism or bravery to permit a lasting impact. Reitman lacks that special finesse, searching for an extraordinary pitch of melancholy, only to connect incomplete ideas with half-baked execution.
Reitman, who also cowrote the screenplay, feels the constant need to "deepen" his characters, granting them wants and motivations -- especially during the moralistic third act -- that are totally alien to how they're initially portrayed.
