This was an exhausting movie to sit through. The recurring imaginary scene in the movie is a piano falling on Maguire and crushing hime. Sadly, this never happens to this pathetic excuse for a human being how can't own up to his responsibilities as a husband/father and indulges in cheap pleasures at the expense of others, including family and friends. It is, however, close to impossible to dislike Maguire while he's playing up that Peter Parker innocence game.

What a WONDERFUL cast! It's definitely a different kind of comedy but has you laughing!
Went to a screening with a Q & A afterwards with Jacob Estes...so much more to the movie than first take! Makes you wonder what we all just "accept" and not question. Brilliant!

My girlfriend and I loved this film. What an original piece of work with stellar performances by Laura Linney and Ray Liotta. We have been so discouraged by the kind of things out in the theatres these days. Finally we found something that excited us, challenged us, thrilled us. Congrats to the filmmakers. Long overdue for a film this exciting.

This is the most intelligent dark comedy I've seen since Fargo. Tremedous performances by an all star cast, especially Laura Linney as an over the top eccentric who is still sexy enough to seduce. This director is not afraid to let scenes develop between actors and his writing is top rate. Details will make you wince and laugh out loud at the same time. Absolutely a must-see!

Everybody in the cast was fantastic, but Tobey Maguire was a special kind of fantastic. Loved the exploration of morally ambiguous choices (along with morally reprehensible ones). Great stuff.
