    This movie reminded me why I go to the movies. It was one of the best films I have seen in years. It made me cry and then laugh within seconds of one another. The cast was amazing, the writing was phenomanal. You should absolutely go see this movie.

    Burns' always impressive sense of place lends authenticity to the pals' perambulations, and the stellar cast brings a welcome overabundance of personality to regrettably one-note roles.

    Fatally conventional in nearly every respect, the movie would be easy to dismiss were it not for Burns's frustrating knack for inserting unexpectedly truthful moments amid all the dross.
  3. Edward Burns' best riff yet on guys trying to sort out their feelings about women.
