Average, average, average
6 July 2002
I don't usually use the middle ground of ratings (4,5,6), but I make an exception for this giving it a firm 5 for middle ground average. Not bad enough to rewind before the end but not engaging enough to want to hunt up another copy if the tape had jammed half way through.

While Cage and Shue give solid performances, the film never raises above the level of formula and cliche. The recurring question while watching this film was, 'Ok, and your point is?' The best that can be said is it paints an earthy and realistic picture of an alcoholic and might urge some to 'Rethink Your 27th Drink'.

Further than that, I wonder what all the awards and hype are about.
