  • Garlin's directing has little pacing, and many of the borderline gags could have been salvaged with some sharper editing. And there's a shocking amount of jokes and situations that just don't work. show more

  • Garlin, like Oscar winner Ernest Borgnine in "Marty," is good company, even when his out-of-control eating and self-loathing threaten to overwhelm him. show more

  • It is a minor movie, but a big-time minor movie...If there is such a thing as a must-see three-star movie, here it is. show more

    For those of us who appreciate subtle humor, stand-up comedians, and want to spend an easy 80 minutes in a theater, it's perfect.
