3.0 out of 5 stars A couple laughs, but more of a serious film June 20, 2009
Format:DVD
This was being advertised heavily and trailered as an outrageous comedy, which admittedly the first act has a few great lines and moments, but it quickly devolves into a serous take on alcoholism and life changes.

The lead womanizing, alcoholic, ranting character was played well by Michael Leydon Campbell, and from what I have seen before this is his breakout role. He manages to fit five different personalities into this story and has all of the screen time, even though he is not given listing on the front cover. The supporting cast has a slew of recognizable faces, including Stephen Root, Grace Zabriskie (much better seen in the Big Love series), Eddie Jemsion (Ocean's trilogy) and Rachael Leigh Cook as the absent love interest.

The segmented story follows him as he devolves into an alcoholic mess, all while losing his job, "friends", motivation and easy one night stands from his main bar. Once the second and third acts materialize the few laughs go away, and a serious recovery tone takes over. The only other funny line later in the movie is from Grace's character with that "I am an island in the middle of Crazy River".

The movie drags in quite a few areas, Campbell's rants get irritating, but his life lessons learned make for a somewhat redeeming quality as far as a message film goes.

Aside from a couple plant reviews here, cover art that has nothing to do with the film (the large picture on the back never happens, planted quotes including..."RLC's best since She's All That" - hardly, "RLC shines as the heroine.." - not even close, she trips into the last scene to try and redeem the absent love story), no special features and average picture and sound, makes this an overall non-recommendation. But maybe some of the spot supporting performances will make this a decent rental for their fans.

Very slow moving movie. Characters are not engaging except Rachel Leigh Cook. But I was able to finish the movie

2.0 out of 5 stars Never really gets going. February 18, 2013
By RTG&T
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Kind of depressing. Makes you want to smack someone! By the time it ends, you still have not really got a plot going,or s feel for it. Just goes nowhere.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible, boring movie with no likeable characters March 4, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I don't know how 5 of 7 people rated this movie 5 stars. It was painful to watch. It is tough to watch a movie when almost every major character is not likeable. There isn't anyone to cheer for in this movie. The main character is a jerk when he is drunk, and he isn't much better when he cleans himself up. The mother is a jerk, the brother is a dweeb and a closet jerk. The only character that is semi likeable is played by Rachael Leigh Cook. But her major flaw is that she actually likes the main character.

It goes no where and it was a waste of 2 hours. How Amazon has this rated at 4.5 stars, but IMDB has it at 5.1 out of 10 and Rotten Tomatoes has it at 1 star is a mystery. Either friends of the people who made the movie planted bogus reviews or amazon is filtering out bad reviews since it is an Amazon Prime movie. The movie stinks, but something about these positive reviews stinks as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Seeing Again January 3, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
My title says it all. I thought the movie blended Bob's alcoholic life with comedy perfectly. It was a sexy, witty film. That's it.
