Very impressed

the actors in this drama did such a good job the director may never quit bowing to cries of 'encore.' Terrific casting. Chris Pine carries this movie very well for a new kid on the block. Pfieffer and Banks do exactly what we expect of two seasoned actors. Very touching film with some nice 'kabaam' moments, just when you need them. And of all things...hollywood seems to have come up with an original plot for this one. I wish there were enough story line to create a sequel just so we could see this group together again. Bank's young son was a great surprise in how well he fit into the story and took his part to the front. If you enjoy movies with great dialog backed up by strong acting, go now, today and then again next week.

Almost Famously Good

The movie has much going for it: three imminently watchable actors with interesting problems to resolve, immersed in culturally quirky issues and influences that swirl around them. However, there are moments when the plot's needs drive character's actions or reactions, resulting in a "huh?" responses. The sublime final reveal makes up for many sins though, as it's a beautiful moment whose roots are nicely concealed earlier on in the film. A few story tweaks here and there, and this one could have been truly great. It's not bad as it is: a 6.5/10

I enjoyed this movie. If you are looking for a comedy, don't pick this movie. Although there are some funny scenes, it's a drama. Worth seeing.

Definitely a chick flick, but from a guy's point of view, it keeps your interest pretty well. Ok for kids except for one gratuitous (but non-explicit) sex scene that didn't need to be there. Some very touching scenes. Some very annoying "what was that all about" scenes. Good casting. Writing ok if a bit contrived at times. Well-filmed.
