This looks good. Nice to see RDJ stretch his legs a bit away from the blockbuster.

script read like it was dipped in corn syrup and the trailers did nothing to make me think it would be anything otherwise.

So really sweet but I should expect to gain much weight?

Trite beyond predictable plot/story; I thought the writing of it was decent for a Lifetime/Oprah movie -- oh, wait...

it was saved and made watchable by the actors - I have to say, although Duval is a long-time favorite and I love Downey, when Billy Bob Thornton is on the screen, I can't take my eyes off him. Damn, he's just getting better and better.

I really like him too..... He can play characters well and he IS a real character. Gotta love him! :thumbup:

This was a fantastic movie. Yes, it had a plot hole in there, but one I could look past. I liked that it kept putting obvious tropes in front of you but then not going that direction. It was a tad long, but unlike in Gone Girl, I feel the movie earned the extra time.

Just watched this as it’s on Netflix currently. Thought it was fantastic. Hard to go wrong with this cast they were all amazing.
