      Sukhdev Sandhu Daily Telegraph (UK) This film manages to be not just bearable, but on occasion actually quite affecting. Apr 20, 2007 Full Review Andrew Pulver Guardian Without Sandler, Reign Over Me would be a gloopy, post-9/11 love-in, making cavalier use of a fine but helpless cast. Rated: 2/5 Apr 20, 2007 Full Review Ian Johns Times (UK) It's as if 9/11 was simply coopted to bring an extra weight to a script that couldn't be trusted to deliver on its own. Rated: 2/5 Apr 20, 2007 Full Review Micheal Compton Bowling Green Daily News Binder does an excellent job of creating interesting characters with compelling stories and sprinkles in some humorous moments. The characters are given life by a talented cast. Nov 21, 2019 Full Review Mattie Lucas The Dispatch (Lexington, NC) Binder's screenplay is a thing of gentle beauty, and indeed so is the film as a whole. Rated: 3.5/4 Jun 6, 2019 Full Review Kaleem Aftab The List Mike Binder likes to fatten up his movies with side stories... These asides are distracting and enjoyable if a little flabby in places. This detracts from what is mostly a thoughtful, even stupefying study/comedy of human frailty. Rated: 4/5 Nov 3, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Jacki S A movie with real heart. One of my favorite drama movies of all times. Highly recommend. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/14/24 Full Review Alfie C ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! This film has now got to be one of my top 10 possibly maybe Evan top 5 but all I know is that this film is really good! This shows the audience that Adam Sandler can play dark and serious roles as well as his comedy roles and I think that is what makes it so good because we are used to laughing at Adam but now we get to see this serious side of him and how amazing of an actor he really is! The story was perfect and it caught my attention as well as my feelings. Seriously if you’re looking for a really good sad film to watch definitely watch this one I 110% recommend!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/10/24 Full Review Max W Reign Over Me might not be able to teach you how to deal with loss, but it strives to convey a message: time will give you the answers you need. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/06/24 Full Review Jason R Adam Sandler in a serious role and he does a great job as a man who lost his family in tragedy Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/20/24 Full Review Fethi 2 yooo.this is a good movie for crying.this film has emotion waves and this provide you perceive it is like real life.adam sandler and other guy are very good.However other chracter werent acting as two of them.ı absouletly recommend Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/22/24 Full Review Hunter E Don Cheadle and Adam Sandler give fantastic performances, Sandler in particular as he shows his more serious side.
