I was pleasantly surprised with this movie. You wouldn't expect Adam Sandler to do so well in this sort of role. This one made me cry and smile, what more could you ask for. Adam Sandler showed how much range his acting can really have.

I purchased this movie and WOW, hit it right on the nose, I have PTSD and it is an awesome tool to also show anyone how the aftermath of a trauma affects us who have it. I t came so close to home for me and I didn't even think it would cause mine wasn't from 911 but something else but I knew it was amazingly true to form because inside told me when a certain scene in the courtroom sent me into

As we come to the tenth anniversary,this film makes me ponder about suffering and hardship.A dentist(Cheadle), tries to keep in touch with his college buddy(Sandler) who lost everything in the aftermath.Sandler is really riveting,as the widower who lost his own family that day.Unfortunately,the court system wants to declare him incompetent.The scenes of rage and anger are compelling,that we wish

It doesn't exploit our emotions about Sept. 11; it simply tells a story that exists because of what happened that day -- one that should resonate with a wide, appreciative audience. Full Review

Reign Over Me uses the rhythms and moods of comedy to explore, and also to contain, overpowering feelings of loss, anger and hurt. And like that earlier movie ("The Upside of Anger"), this one is maddeningly uneven. Full Review

Binder has set a difficult bar -- to make a funny, sad, original movie about the healing power of not necessarily healing -- and he just manages to clear it. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
This is not a simple, uplifting tale. It's never clear whether Charlie will fully recover, and that sense of realism is the film's strength. Full Review
James Berardinelli
It's tough to make a good tearjerker - one need look no further than this misfire to understand why. Full Review
