Yet another retread of Cage's weak formula of a gloomy man examining his life.

The Weather Man is more of a parable than a story; it just goes on and on and on, and the only point is to endure. It's not very uplifting, but sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's sad; sometimes hopeful, and sometimes melancholy. But that's life.

Intended as director Gore Verbinski's palate cleanser before back-to-back "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequels, this is an apprehensive cringe comedy of male malaise. It's also Verbinski's best to date, a small-scale challenge he should attempt more often.

If you've never heard of a "living funeral," this film is an icy introduction.

A look at the commonest fear nipping at the heart of Middle America. Not the war in Iraq, nor terrorism, but the breakdown of the family unit and how - and if - people can cope with it.

Narrated by Nic Cage in a zombie-like monotone, this flick is not only gross and morose, but relentlessly depressing.

One can imagine this film as a nasty, edgy, biting little indie. But all dressed up in slick Hollywood finery, it has nowhere to go.

It may look bleak, but there's still some beauty.

A bleak, messy midlife crisis drama as unsure of itself as a weather forecast.

Dave Spritz is a shallow creation, one that even an actor of Cage's talents cannot bring to three dimensional life. The problem gets worse: we wouldn't much care for him even if he were real.

Cage is superb in the lead, brilliantly conveying David's confusion with some well chosen blankly bewildered looks.

It may be rather mopey and languid, but this intensely introspective comedy has the ability to get under our skin.

Few movie characters of late have been so expertly crafted as Dave Spritz.

Há filmes que são assim; funcionam justamente porque te mandam para fora do cinema em um estado de profunda reflexão.

As much fun as standing outside in a blizzard for two hours without a coat.

A ballsy, full-out original studio film with independent spirit.

Cage and Caine are accomplished actors, enjoyable to watch in almost everything, except this drivel.

My reaction was that this was a bit silly, bordering on stupid, and much to my chagrin, it became a theme throughout the rest of the movie.

...dark clouds, a frigid plot and a downpour of miserable jokes. My advice is to stay home.
