Goofs

The central characters say (two times) that they are buying an apartment on 1st Avenue and 77th Street and when they enter the apartment (also two times) it's clearly off Amsterdam Avenue on Cathedral Parkway, which is around 110th Street in West Harlem/Morningside Heights - more than 2 miles from where they are supposed to be. These two neighborhoods don't look alike at all. See more »

Poor Value Judgments
27 July 2015 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

Positives: 1. Dialogue especially lines meant to be humorous or sarcastic (Freeman's lines) were the highlight of the film. 2. The buying and selling of an apartment in New York was insightful. At least those parts that might be accurate.

Negatives: 1. The young girl (accompanies mom who is looking at the apt. Freeman is selling) and appears every so often in the film while also offering sage advice to Freeman, was expecting tea as a reward yet we never see her again. That's called a loose end. I would have had her and her mom moving into another vacant apartment in that building resulting in an intelligent relationship with Freeman & Keaton (Freeman's wife). 2. Too many of the buyers/sellers were characterized as a bit too greedy, self centered or off centered for me. 3. Most importantly the script had Freeman and Keaton dissing their agent at the end (treating like trash as they turned their backs while walking away) after their last second changing of minds on selling. Particularly disconcerting given the tremendous amount of work that agent put into the sales preparation with her only compensation to be the sales commission. 4. Wasn't sure how anything was added by having a supposed terrorist; their dog in the hospital; their flashbacks; Freeman's paintings, to, what might have been, a more intelligent story.
