This movie is a soap opera that thinks it is a movie. From the very first scene we are hit in the face with wordy, run on drama that never stops. The next scene then introduces a moody, wordy couple, and so does the next scene, and the scene after that. We eventually end up with a cafeteria of moody, wordy, argumentative, frowning characters who each take their turns being moody, wordy, argumentative and frowning.
This IS a soap opera. We have the unhappy couple, the person finding out they are adopted, the person dying in a hospital, the fighting over a funeral/will, the person who finds out they are pregnant and the drama goes on and on. Seriously, one could have a drinking game downing shots whenever someone (especially guys) suddenly break into tears. Even the kid characters aren't spared the pained past stain to their dialogue.
I don't know where this was filmed but on that planet the people live in perfect homes without dust or signs of wear. AGAIN, just like a soap opera.
I honestly do not see how this screenplay managed to secure such a famous and talented cast. However, they are utterly wasted here. It is impossible to like anyone because you can't get to know them. They are always talking, talking, talking. Or crying. Or talking to their computers. God, if someone had a pet in this movie I am sure the screen writer would have written a scene with them having a ten minute, tear filled scene on the floor with it. The cast deserved better to work with.
This should have been a soap opera named PMS Hospital.
