Rated 6/10. For me, the ending was the best part of the movie.

This movie may appeal to fans of family dramas and complicated family dynamics if you can overlook some things (predictable plot and clumsy pacing).

I did not like this movie. I've borrowed it twice and have not watched all of it either time, make that 3 times. Not watched!

Pleasantly surprised ! This movie was well written and capably acted by Elizabeth Banks & Chris Pine. The story was a little like Raninman (but also very different) and it was interesting to watch it unfold. Not sure where the Banks character's humiliation came from at the end, but otherwise a feel good movie. Young actor who porttrayed Banks' son was awesome and Michelle Pfieffer was effective as Pine's mother.

a very difficult topic about people protecting the ones they love, for all sorts of reasons. when the fog clears, perhaps it would have been better to be forthright in the first place. based on a true story. I was quite interested in Chris Pine stepping out of his usual role and trying something a little different. I was not disappointed. a troubled 30 something finally confronting his ghosts and accepting the reality of his relationship with his father, who has passed away. Good thoughtful movie. Good movie there are flaws in the characters and you can love them or hate them at different times.

Semi-sweet film, I'm not the only one who found some of the characters annoying, but I feel the ending made up for this. Families are so complicated.

You might like it or not. All depends on how you see yourself or others in your family. Some people are like this.

LOVED it. An unexpected pleasure of a film. Don't expect to like or even understand all the characters, but be prepared to be interested. Life takes on texture and depth when people try to see through others' eyes. So do films. This is a modern story about making a living and having a family....or not.

[While at a record store, Sam notices Josh sneaking a CD into his backpack. Trys to talk him out of it.]

Sam: "No. You wouldn't get ten feet out the door. Look, look." [points to the security guard] "You can't be stealing CDs. Nobody even buys CDs anymore. It's a record store. You can't shoplift from a record store. It's like kicking a dead man."

Josh: "Do you work here?"

Sam: "Probably only a matter of time. I'm Sam. I sorta know your mom."

Josh: "You're not gonna tell her, are you?"

Sam: "If your taste in music blows...I don't know, maybe."
