I'll admit that Jason Reitman is just not my guy. It does hit some odd tones along the way, which is something I generally enjoy. But there's an intense corniness to the melodrama of this movie that I find to be a strikeout, even if he wasI'll admit that Jason Reitman is just not my guy.

I couldn't buy into this film at all and by the end was pretty disgusted. It was told from the kid's POV, so OK, he doesn't quite understand the world of adults... But where was the animal passion that would make this story believable? TheI couldn't buy into this film at all and by the end was pretty disgusted.

The guy can bake a pie...metaphor aside...so what? She knows him 5 days and throws her life away for him? Mental. The she waits years for his return? Pathetic. I love Kate, but have no sympathy for her ridiculous character. Why did she want to make this turkey? Maybe I have no romance in my soul, but this left me cold. Expand

Labor Day is boring. Most of the major characters in the film are either comatose or nearly so, particularly Kate Winslet and her son Henry who can barely squeeze out a word. I am prepared to suspend disbelief but this film is ridiculouslyLabor Day is boring. Most of the major characters in the film are either comatose or nearly so, particularly Kate Winslet and her son Henry who can barely squeeze out a word. I am prepared to suspend disbelief but this film is ridiculously impossible and unbelievable. There is scarcely an exchange which you can say it is remotely possible a human being would say a sentence like that. The most accurate thing about this movie is the title because it is real labor to watch this slow moving, boring film. Expand
