Eva Amurri Martino,
With the same sort of unabashed honesty that helped make "Something's Gotta Give" such a hit with the 40+ set is Emmy-winning "Monk" star Tony Shalhoub's directorial debut. This "middle age comedy" features his wife, the still-lovely Brooke Adams ("Days of Heaven"), as an actress in her 50's who laments both the fading of her looks and the social nether-strata she has been banished to by a youth-worshipping public. With a warm and deft emotional sense, writer Lynne Adams, who is Brooke's sister, provides Shalhoub's cast, which also includes Eva Amurri of "The Banger Sisters", Gary Sinise ("The Human Stain") and Shalhoub himself, with plenty of ripe material to explore. Without rising to the preachy "these kids today" levels to which Clint Eastwood often rises in celebrating age and wisdom, Shalhoub's love for not only his wife, but also telling a good story, shine through. Score: 3.5/5
