Possible spoiler, I'm not sure.
10 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The acting was alright, not great, but the actors were fine enough. The story was very confusing, and it seemed to me that it was a story about a philanderer coming back to the home, for a strange reason, because no one ever explains why the divorce hadn't happened in so many years. What it seemed like to me was a story about a man in another midlife crisis (he'd probably had several by that age) where the man was selfishly scrambling around his life looking for the easiest place to land for his retirement. When it came down to them talking about finances and then you understand that he's also in financial difficulty, then it really just seems like he's a user who goes back to a more financially secure home, which he'd left years before, and now disrupts everyone's lives, and then, for reason's that just seem stupid, everyone takes him back into their lives, selfishness, trouble and all, and supposedly everyone has found religion again and suddenly everyone lives "happily ever after". Yeah... no.
