This movie wasn't great but it wasn't terrible either. There were spots that dragged on or were somewhat awkward. It has a great theme to it and the music is pretty good too. All the actors were great but I was pleasantly surprised by Orlando's performance; it was fun seeing him having fun in the role. But they tried to make it a little better than it was supposed to be by jumbling everything.

For all sort of reasons, I was disappointed that there is barely anything of Bruce McGill as the family's hearty swindler. And there is too much of Sarandon, whose big scene--a speech at her late husband's memorial service, complete with jokes and a tap dance--is the movie's most egregious misfire. Full Review
