it's there if you look hard enough
11 March 2012 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

i am not a movie critic by any stretch of the imagine - i watch a movie for entertainment. i like a movie to move me in some way - to make me laugh, make me cry ... to make me FEEL something for the characters.

this movie did just that. Oscar winning performances? hard to say ... but this movie deserves much more than the 3 stars that it has right now on IMDb.

lives crossing paths, zig-zagging and enmeshing one another. everyone has demons. everyone has things inside of them that haunt them. these people have to face theirs - and this is the story of those lives coming to terms and facing the reality of their existence.

i rated this movie high because i wanted it to move up in the ratings. this movie would be about an 8 for me. Dane Cook did a great job in this dramatic role, Elizabeth Mitchell is always fantastic .. and the rest of the cast did a great job.

it made me cry, smile, cheer and empathize .. and that's enough for me.
