“Beware all you Matthew Broderick fans, this is NOT a funny movie, because it is a slowburning portrait about a grumpy, middle aged, divorced man, stuck in a a dead end job. Quite depressing…u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe bad: this movie is slow, very SLOW and kinda depressing. I dont mind slow or even depressing when it is a heavy drama, but I DO mind boring and this movie is undoubtedly BORING.. There is no real drama either to speak of. So whatu0026#39;s left? The acting isnt great either, I mean for such a character portrait movie like this, the acting should be up there, but the acting is just average.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMore bad: although it is not meant to be comedy, there are still some tongue in cheek jokes, but they fall flat as well. This whole movie feels so uninspired and slow.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNot any good? Well, the movie has got a happy end, but in the end this is one of the weakest movies that Matthew Broderick has ever starred in. He just aint suited for making slowburning u0026quot;dramasu0026quot;. Better watch any older (eighties/nineties) movie with Matthew Broderick in it, there are lots of them, which are truly hilariously funny!”
