      Audience Member I'm grossed out by the overall rating. This movie is one of my new favorites. It might help if you are in recovery. It's a little dramatized (it's based on a play), but they are trying to say a lot in a little over an hour. And Richard Lewis is particularly great in this film. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is great. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Damn shame this movie fell by the wayside. Brilliant monologues, brilliant performances. Very simple, well-told story. Great shots of mid-90's NYC. Definitely one to check out. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member I recommend this movie to everyone who has insomnia or sleeping problems.. it'll take you to Morpheus arms before you notice it. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review jack c Richard Lewis plays a "version" of himself... which means this was part of his rehab. And he's phenomenal anyway. Other actors (Wiest, Posey, Rockwell) are great too, even if it's kind of repetitive. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Oppresive, banal, contrived and preachey. Not a caracter study but a study in the complete caricature of an AA frequenter. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
