Goofs

When Ray beats up Finn in the bathroom of the diner it hardly looks like Ray punches him with any much force under his arm. And when it shows the outside of the door he only may have had time for a couple more punches at the most. Later when he goes to see Keegan at his place Finn opens the door with a huge Red mark around his eye and mouth which I don't find he could have inflicted that damage with what happened it looked unbelievable.

Touching father / son / grandson story
18 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

I really liked this movie despite the criticism against it. It's a story of men's love, more demonstrative than proclaimed. It's not often we get an honest look into the true bonds across generations. Feminists may disagree, but I see no wrong with celebrating either sex's strengths and shortcomings. It's an honest introspective with a bit of sensationalism for entertainment; I feel it was very tastefully done.

John Travolta's life made him perfect for this role. I won't dwell on it but he is phenomenal without ever being over the top. There wasn't a bad act in the bunch, from leads to support and there are a number of genuinely heartwarming and hilarious moments making this film a top class choice you won't regret seeing.
