    This movie is all over the place but it has a good heart. Chris Pine is trying to go beyond Kirk or the Unstoppable train guy. Maybe he is just not that ranged as an actor.

    Pine and the always-watchable Banks make the best of a bad screenplay, but People Like Us gives us nothing that we can relate to.
