A "downer" worth watching
28 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are a lot of movies about drunks and addicts: The Lost Weekend, Barfly, and Leaving Las Vegas, and McArthur Park to name a few. If you identify with them at all (like me), then they are a real downer; depressing as hell but too real nevertheless. Never Get Outta the Boat is a film I stumbled upon at the video store a few days ago and was riveted from scene one. Having spent some time in rehab and way too many AA and NA group sessions (that's how I found out I was NOT an alcoholic/addict), I can tell you this movie hits home. It shows how vulnerable sobriety is to being lost. The guys make one comment in the film that sticks out for me. They are discussing how they relate to new guys who come into the halfway house. They say that either they like the guy and then he relapses and they never see him again or they REALLY like him and relapse WITH him. That is so f-----ing true!!! I recommend this film to anybody thinking about picking up that bottle or snorting a line. Teens should see it too (with their parents).
