Takes a promising idea and buries it under subplots and speeches that don't know when to quit.

When the movie gets heavy-handed about how [Gibson's] becoming a better person, all the comedy disappears and what's left is swimming in mawkishness and bogus sentimentality.

That the movie is made by a woman who can challenge any male filmmaker on Earth for ham-handed direction connotes some kind of sexual equality.
December 14, 2000
Doesn't even look to have been directed; manufactured is perhaps a more apt description, pieced together using demographic studies and marketing reports and focus groups.

...is there some clause written into [Helen Hunt's] contract that says she must have a scene in which she cries?
