  1. Plays like a series of well-done but disconnected acting-class sketches, filled with a huge cast of first-rate actors whose careers have all gone into decline.
  2. 50
    A soggy cannoli of a domestic dramedy.
  3. Rather like listening to Vladimir Horowitz play "Chopsticks."
  4. 38
    All the obligatory plot elements are there. Love and loss, anger and forgiveness, illness and death. But they never flow together to make a coherent story. Instead, they just pop up whenever the script is in trouble. Which is all the time.
  5. Has plenty of warmth, affection and conventional wisdom, but too much of the time it plays out in routine fashion with moments of contrivance.
  6. 25
    The movie should be praying to St. Jude, patron saint of lost causes. Maybe he could perform a miracle and turn this into a cable offering, so no one has to buy a ticket to see it.
  7. Although the concept seems promising enough, it is undone by disastrous casting decisions and an utter lack of ensemble unity.
