Dire rubbish

Michael D lowers himself again - and if this is what women's liberation has done for them, I expect to see a new feminist movement yelling for the train to stop. No wisdom in this at all. Nothing but the illustration of how far basic morality has fallen in modern America, which is truly the reason for its precipitous decline. Waste of time, waste of talent. The women come out worse than the lead on this one.

Curious omission
Verified purchase
Odd that the always watchable Olivia Thirlby (Maureen) was left out of the credits. A typo? Perhaps she had second thoughts about her involvement after they'd wrapped. Otherwise, a rather sad study of Michael Douglas' decent into mid-life crisis. A heavyweight cast for a lightweight script, but watchable (like a car crash)…

Great cast

I liked this DVD and the cast were super. Did not have to think too much as the story moved through the motions. Would say easy on the eye with a predictable story

Is Michael Douglas , superb , or is he just being himself . Seen once , very performance seem a repeat . Having said that , this applies to an enormous amount of actors .
The casting director calls for mention , as every character seem specifically picked for their standard roles .
Acting by rote and boredom by choice , life is too short to go beyond 50 minutes , a nap will be more fun .

Its just OK. Great acting from Michael Douglas.
I found this film Ok and enjoyed watching to the end, its fairly flat but does have some interesting behaviour by the main character who is very unlikeable and self absorbed. You have to watch the film to make up your mind, as I believe its a film people will either like or dislike or don't see the point of. Michael Douglas is superb and very convincing in this role. The overall acting and cinematography is good. The plot deals with the realities of life's highs and lows, not aging well, and the consequences of destructive behaviour. It shows how the main character deals (or doesn't deal but justifies) his unreasonable behaviour and how this impacts family and friends. Its worth watching if you want something a bit different. I liked it but didn't think it warranted 4 stars.
