    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Christensen is the only jolt of excitement in this turgid soap opera. show more

    Bob Graham San Francisco Chronicle

    Kline, in particular, has the spark and know-how to overcome some awfully belabored writing and situations. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    Kline is one of the rare major actors not afraid to look like hell. And given his character's plight, his willingness to get physically unpleasant matches the emotion he brings to the part. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Mark Andrus's script is built on soggy sandstone, and Irwin Winkler's bulldozer direction keeps unearthing toxic epiphanies. That's not to say the movie isn't occasionally moving, as well as exasperating. show more

    Elevated beyond its cutesy contrivances and mawkishness by some extraordinarily good performances. show more

    Kline will break your heart, while the rest of the movie will just make you sick. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    This movie lets you feel something. Like George's house, if not his life, it's built well and full of heart. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Because it is slick and classy and good to look at, and the actors are well within their range of competence, you can enjoy the movie on a made-for-TV level, but you wish it had been smarter and tougher. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Makes for a compelling comedy-drama about family ties. It's only when the cancer takes center stage that the movie feels like a wash. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    An overwrought, ramshackle weepie that really doesn't deserve Kline's Oscar-caliber work. show more
