A film that tries to convey what it really feels like to pick up the kids - and does it well.
10 September 2001 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

Few films these days accurately convey the emotions and difficulties of divorce, such as it is in Hollywood that no film director likes to touch it with a barge-pole.

This film does it well, albeit a little inflated at some points this is a sound and undemanding portrait of life after divorce, represented in a way that makes it easy to familiarise yourself with the leading roles.

The only point it suffers in my opinion is when - in order to bring a climax to the end of the film - there is a moment between Donny, played by Paul Reiser (aka Burke in Aliens) and his daughter Emma, played by Eliza Dushku (aka Faith in Buffy The Vampire Slayer.) Although it does the job, I personally hate such devices to bring climaxes to films.

But alas, this is not Shakespearean tragedy, but more of a modern-day misfortune which is aware of its position and is more then good at the latter.
