Absurdist comedy that is sometimes endearing and mostly absurdist. Has funny moments, but lacks drive.
Little more than a vehicle for Steve Carell to be Steve Carell.
The indignity of old age and dying is mixed with the reunion of two estranged siblings. The script is not very good, but the play of acting legends Linney and Hoffman make the movie watchable and sometimes endearing.
Liked the calm pace of the movie. Even though the story misses a solid backbone, the natural acting and chemistry between Gellar and Baldwin makes it watchable.
A strong stomach is required with all the gushing of blood, but definitely well worth a watch.
