    A light, feel-good movie. Jason Lee is great in it, and Hope Davis does a fine job as well. Go NetFlix on it.

    Very clever and entertaining. Some of the therapy material is intelligent. Hope Davis is wonderful.

    The performances are disarming and Mumford is the kind of comedy that grows on you if you give it a chance.

    Seems as though its reach is always exceeding its grasp...partly because Kasdan spreads himself a bit thin amongst the nine major characters he's working with.
  3. Turns the tricks of psychology into duplicitous high play.
