A rare drama comedy that's more focused on the drama side
6 August 2014 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

Seeing Paul Giamatti who's famous of his comedic performances and dialogs, even in action movies, I expected a lot of goofy laughs in this movie. Well, what I got is a bit the contrary where the drama side about the themes of family issues, trusts issues and motivation and achievement issues is more focused and prevalent. But I won't say that I was disappointed because there are some enjoyable laughs in the one-liner dialogs and awkward settings. It's nice that the drama side is still prevalent even at the comedic moments. Aside from Giamatti, and maybe Cannivale, I didn't see any other special performances. Their performances are just enough to cover the crucial aspects of this movie. Bobby Cannivale did quite well on the sport scenes, although he should really work on his use of facial expressions.
