Movie Reviews

Embarrassing...and a waste of good talent..
Henry Erlenwein | New York | 07/27/2008

"Famke Janssen.
Rip Torn.
Great character actors.
It's all here with the exception of a decent denouement.
Decent! Say rather proper.
You don't titilate the audience with a good storyline and then pull out the rug. For no viable reason.
The last minutes of this production are so silly and dumb that it borders on the ridiculous. If you listen to the Director Commentary it becomes even more mundane and foolish.
A bad shot for cinematic entertainment.
Judge for yourself.
Good potential, terrible ending

"Don't waste your money. This film wasn't developed enough (it's only 92 minutes, that's about the length of a children's cartoon movie), and so none of it makes any sense when it just---ends. I've been scanning the Internet trying to figure out the ending. Does she live? Does she die? And what's with the final scene anyway????

Famke Janssen is a great actress, but her character never gets developed enough in order for you to decide what to think of her. Compulsive gambler mother is better than alcoholic abusive husband?? Dunno.

Frankly, I didn't get it. I"m glad I saw it for free."
