...worth the time. ...leaves something to be desired, (as in you would like more), but inspires thought and introspection.
What percentage of movies does a person go to see these days that leave them wondering what happened to their eight to ten dollars? ANSWER: TOO MANY! This movie isn't like that. It is a story about real people that are sometimes a combination of both likable and unlikable.
Not enough character development & some plot lines left twisting in the wind.
Forces viewers to think about the choices they have made for good or bad in their own lives.
Well acted by: Scott Cohen, Judd Hirsch, Susan Floyd, Ato Essandoh and Elliot Korte.
Contains some good lighthearted humor.
