Insightful movie about middle age and world weariness
8 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great tale that highlights the dangers of getting what you wish for and not appreciating what you have. Bruce Dern is terrific as Bobby Lee. It's strange to see him in a role where he isn't a scumbag, but his performance is brilliant and touching as a man who wrestles with latent immaturity and crushing loss. Ann-Margret was born to her role as adoring and then betrayed wife. My favorite lines will always be about being the "Daddy." I'm surprised that this movie doesn't get much play in rerun on television. It's the same coming-of-age genre as "10" except that Bo Derek didn't star as the lust interest. Both Dern and Ann-Margret pull off great performances as nouveau riche Texans who are basically down-home at heart.
