  • The movie stays alert to the dreams and disappointments of four average people on an emotional roller coaster. It's a sublimely acted movie, hilarious and heartfelt. show more

  • The performances are uniformly top-notch. It was a treat to see Ortiz, an actor known on screen mostly for his impressive cameos in movies like "El Cantante," in a leading part enabling him to express his considerable emotional range. show more

  • Hoffman emerges as a confident film director with visual flair and, no surprise, a remarkable ability to maximize his fellow actors' work. show more

    well I fell asleep two times..so if that is any indication how slowly this film moves,. You keep waiting for a reaction from the actors..and they just drag and drag and drag..It was awlful

    This film is about feelings. More specifically the volatility of feelings. I have a feeling Jack will be nominated for some awards. Tight cast. Swimming Drama.
