    Entertaining and dramatic

    An interesting character study set in Los Angeles. Its hard to get past the idea of Dane Cook as a psychoanalyst/psychologist and leading man. However, props to him for going outside of his comfort zone and trying to tackle his role as Ryan. Definitely worth a look to see his attempt at this serious role. The most moving story and interactions in this film involved Drew (Miranda Bailey), Erik (Vincent Ventresca), and Kate (Elizabeth Mitchell). The whole marathon scene was amazing! Maybe a little bit expected for the critically jaded movie audiences, but a moving portrayal of struggle and victory none-the-less. An undeniable triumph. Barbra Hershey fans will enjoy her appearance as she plays a small role as Ryan's (Dane Cook) mom. This film has its moments of entertainment but also lives up to its title. A nihilistic drama that tries to deliver a happy ending; a conflicted movie. Its an existential kidnapping mystery movie with careless affairs thrown in for good measure, and an odd mix of self-loathing that will surprise you.
