went off track
4 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think the problem was "too many fish in the pond" You had a great story with the character of Dan going over the edge. The fact that he was put in a place where he had to go to meetings with older men could have been a heart wrenching gem. Great idea. Unfort. it got muddled with all these weird side stories. I kept saying "huh?" The whole strange character of Charlotte was wacko and unneeded. I love Christopher Lloyd but he was over the top and would have been better in the mens group. Jerry Stillers comedic timing was way under utilized.Tom Pelphrey is an actor with great range who could have really made a mark with this.Its really too bad. Hopefully he will find a role that will showcase his talent.
