    Solid on all levels - storyline, dialogue, visuals, and definitely performances. This movie has layers if you look for them. "Two thumbs up."

    A good movie, although it looses it's way a little in sentiment and becomes a little flabby towards the end. It made my girl shed a tear and I was not bored. Affleck made a good job of a guy struggling with his conscious and Paltrow was great at someone who was unsure of what was the right thing to do! One worth getting out for a lazy Sunday afternoon or when you

    Simultaneously contrived and genuinely felt.
  2. Affleck and Paltrow, who've been excellent elsewhere, display less chemistry than they've shown in magazine photo shoots. Even Woody and Bo Peep had more going on between them in "Toy Story" than these two manage here.
  3. Surprisingly tepid and soapy.
