Storyline

Presented with an ultimatum by the Mrs. (she wants another child; Tom thinks one's enough, especially since their brood is in rehab: "What are you going for, group discount?"), Tom finds himself out in the world, alone. Tom's life goes in a tailspin as he juggles alimony and rehab payments while his job goes south, courtesy of his corrupt partner Mike. Yet he manages to find a measure of humor and redemption as he realizes that if it's not happening at home, it's not happening anywhere: "You don't know what you have until it's all you've got." Halfway Decent is a story about one man's journey to find the key to his front door.

This is an excellent movie.
21 April 2006 | by ehkirbyzookSee all my reviews

"Halfway Decent" is not the best title for a feature film, but after seeing the film, I'd say it's perfect. Like the lead character say, "I have my good days, and my bad days." I think we can all relate to that. This is a movie about a man journey to find his way back to his true self, only to realize that he never really left. While there are some technical shortcomings, The performances in this film are all outstanding. Rarely in films these days, and hardly ever in Hollywood Studio movies do we get honesty and truth. These characters are real. Every moment is honest. The characters are people we can all relate to, and Ernie Hudson's performance is nothing short of brilliant. Alan Berger is definitely a directer/writer to watch. I hope distribution falls in place, because this is one movie that truly deserves to be seen.
