  1. One of those purposefully glum studies in alienation that Hollywood occasionally produces as blue-state specials for disenchanted liberals.
  2. A guaranteed downer that's devoid of any upside, and free of dangerously entertaining side effects.

    Meet American Beastly, perhaps the most bitter studio film of the year.

    The Weather Man is more than entertainment. It is reflections of the life of a weather as his life crumbles around him. His life starts off low then gets lower but through endless struggles of trying to impress his Pulitzer prize winning father and to mend his broken relationship. His career however looks like it might save him as tries desperately to become a national weather man. Overall very uplifting and it might have changed the way I view the world. Do not watch for light entertainment. This movie may answer the question of the meaning of life. Full Review »

    The Weather Man is an offbeat comedy with amusing acting and many life lessons that are in the story.
