Andy Bartlett’s review:
Not remotely the Anchorman or Stepbrothers Will Ferrell. This is an odd, but overall pretty decent, movie. It's also a small, intimate movie; the vast majority of it takes place in Ferrell's yard, and the cast is really only four major characters. It could easily be a play. Ferrell did an admirable job playing a straight man, but he mostly played the role as a guy who was tired and worn down. There weren't any scenes where he was obviously intoxicated -- stumbling, slurred speech, etc. That seemed like an odd decision. There's good chemistry between him and the neighbor kid who becomes his anchor in his post-career, post-marriage and, hopefully, post-alcohol world, as well.
I liked this movie; definitely worth a look.
