An OK film, an OK acting...
11 August 2008 | by sweetyboniSee all my reviews

The film was an "OK", but I expected more because of the actors. Yes, Diane Keaton was great, as always, but even though, she didn't touch me so that I could enjoy her acting all the time. I can't comment about Dax Shepard, this is the first time I saw him in a movie, but I guess he was OK. Liv Tyler, come on! She could put a little more effort. But after all she was OK too.

The whole film though... What a mess! I was so bored at times that I wanted to turn into the next charter and still be bored. I certainly expected a lot more, but it's an OK and that is still something we can put on.
