  • The plot relies heavily on pat betrayal, forced coincidences - and the sort of closure that lands, with a thud, in a tidy package of cliches. Yet some of the humor is delicious. show more

  • Grief and suicide seem unlikely subjects for a comedy. But Shrink tries gamely to mine edgy humor from the darkest places. Sometimes it works. Other times, its Hollywood-centric focus feels like a re-heated cinemash of "The Wackness," "Crash" and "The Player." show more

  • A pity-party of Hollywood narcissism. show more

    Very good movie. Emotional, but not in your face. Not your run of the mill, flashy, computer grapics movie.
