      Thuggin T The movie is super slow-paced and overall, it's very, very predictable. Most situations just seem very forced and awkward. I get the message they were trying to go for, like you can't help who you fall for, but it has been done much better many times before and just seems to fall flat. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/04/24 Full Review Miami4life One of my favorite movies of all time, great rainy day on the beach film Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/13/23 Full Review Rob A It's good. A few irksome moments, including a teenage daughter whom many parents might flip out on, but a few laugh-out-loud moments as well - especially early on. This is a well acted family drama with a love triangle at it's center. A young Emily Blunt will get your attention with her admittedly smaller role as well! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/07/23 Full Review Thomas I wish they made more movies like this today! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/03/23 Full Review Sean S Mr. Carell is a lovable lead that make this movie work. He does a great job of switching between the humor and the drama to make this movie work. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/07/23 Full Review John N One of my favorites! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
