The movie should really be a mess by trying to go after three or four things at once that seem unconnected. But this isn't a movie about single mothers or the cynical world of professional sports or race relations or contracts or disapproving sisters or the male-dominated professional world (Todd Louiso!). It's about a man finding himself through the mid-life forest and coming out scratched but clean and redeemed on the other side. And that man is Tom Cruise.
Nearly crosses the line at times with some drama but just before you roll your eyes, you're reeled back in.
JK Simmons (nominated for a Spirit Award rightly so) absolutely nails it.
It's clearly Oscar bait, but it's the good kind of Oscar bait. The last 15 minutes alone should win anyone over. It's a movie that's tough to not like.
Incredibly boring with unflattering characters and attempts at comedy that had me eye rolling ever bit as much as I was checking my watch. No stakes, no story, no intrigue. Just a series of set pieces that, for the most part, linger on nothing of interest.
The character of Tin Tin himself is as bland as he appears. Wish I would've skipped this one.
