After a pitch meeting with some studio execs, Blair Underwood's character complains, "We brought them a china cup and they told us to go back and make a beer mug."

Not everything works, but there are several nice performances, particularly by David Hyde Pierce and Catherine Keener and I enjoyed watching an A-list director stray from the tried and true and explore rockier ground.
