Please, its too late for me ... save yourself and don't watch this movie
Someone said this was thought provoking and based on that and the cast list, I thought I'd give this a try. As far as I can see the main villain in this movie is the script writer. While the plot was interesting if predictable, this film has some fine actors which do their best during some (albeit tear-less) crying scenes. The worst part is that there is way too much expository monologue.
If you like emotional drivel ("...where did it all go wrong...") then tune into something with better scripts, like the Jerry Springer show.
While this would've made a fine Twilight Zone episode, there's just not enough there to stretch into a full length film.
Like I said, it's too late for me. Save yourself.
