A wise and touching film with a lot of love in it. I may have given the wrong impression: It's not entirely about drinking, it's just entirely about a drinker.

Chicago Tribune
Thanks to the actors and the way the movie lets them loose, it's often funny or moving at all the right moments.

Variety
Writer-director Matt Mulhern confidently anchors his drama-comedy about an alcoholic Atlantic City pit boss with good writing and sharp dialogue. Script never treats characters as less than human.
60
This downbeat indie drama gives the leads a few excellent scenes together, and they acquit themselves credibly. But there's also a fair amount of wilted comedy from the stock supporting characters.
40
Loaded with unoriginal ideas, weak comedic concepts, and underwhelming emotional climaxes, the movie is the definition of bland.
40
Duane Hopwood is suffused with hangdog dreariness, equivalent to a unsoled shoe treading rainwater.
38
Philadelphia Inquirer
A fairly dreadful melodrama drenched in self-pity.
