a smart dramedy
pretty disappointing, if you think your life sucks, you'll feel better after watching the characters in this movie.
good. funny. good rental.
This is a movie about sad, disappointed smart people stumbling through life. Their sharp intellects in the face of mediocrity spawn great comedy.
I know a lot of people don't like him, but Sarah Jessica Parker is incredible in this movie.
#1 smart people were not smart. Characters were boring except for the stepbrother and his comic relief.
I must say I have to a gree with many of the comments already posted. The Quaid character is thoroughly unlikeable although he does redeem himself by the end, but it does make you wonder why the Sarah Parker character sticks with him. I felt she had a nice part here, but the real winner of the movie is Thomas Hayden Church whose character essentially has the only insight in the move. The smart people ain't so smart. I wouldn't waste money, however it won't be a bad rental in the future.
WORST MOVIE EVER!!!
