Is today the day?
I don't know. Maybe.
What's your gut tell you?
That I'm nauseous.
How 'bout less literally...
I'm afraid of deciding.
I'm *not* afraid of either scenario, but it's just - I want this to be something we're doing, not something we're not doing.

I had a good expectation about this movie. It is a good theme: how a moment in life may define your destiny. Very appealing.
However, the plot goes into 2 different but equally boring directions: a holiday family BBQ filled with drama and a stupid action story apparently written by a 12-year-old kid. What kept me watching this was the refusal to believe that it was only that: I was truly expecting something exceptional to happen. As you may guess, I was frustrated.
Please do not misunderstand me. Actors did a good job, in my humble opinion, and you can really feel NYC streets, which results in a very realistic sensation from both acting and scenario. But the core of the movie -- the story, the plot -- is rotten, and these qualities cannot afford to make a good movie without its support.
