  • Ferrell delivers a performance of implosive intensity that rings true in every detail. show more

  • There are too many somber interludes with nothing going on but an acoustic guitar echoing over the soundtrack, the spareness of the score suggesting the emptiness of the characters' lives. show more

  • From time to time the movie grabs you (though the music keeps repelling you). Taking stock and letting go-of superfluous things, of worn-out love-is a strong theme. But the progression of the script is like Nick's self-help program. We're familiar with the steps. show more

    This movie will not be what you expect.. Not the funny kind of movie Will normally does. This was very slow and somber. I have more respect for him as an actor but still not my cup of tea.
