Editorial Reviews

Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Charlie (Aaron Paul, TV's "Breaking Bad" ) are a young married couple whose bond is built on a mutual love of music, laughter and drinking...especially the drinking. When Kate's drinking leads her to dangerous places and her job as a school teacher is put into jeopardy, she decides to join AA and get sober. With the help of her new friend and sponsor Jenny (Octavia Spencer, The Help), and the vice principal at her school, the awkward, but well intentioned, Mr. Davies, Kate takes steps toward improving her health and life. Sobriety isn't as easy as Kate had anticipated. Her new lifestyle brings to the surface a troubling relationship with her mother, facing the lies she's told her employer (Megan Mullaly TV's "Parks and Recreation" ) and calls into question whether or not her relationship with Charlie is built on love or just a boozy diversion from adulthood.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alternative title: "Sober" November 16, 2012
"Smashed" (2012 release; 85 min.) brings the story of a married couple, Charlie (played by Aaron Paul) and Kate (played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead), who enjoy going out and partying it up. Then several incidents happen to Kate (blacking out in the middle of nowhere; throwing up in front of her elementary school students due to a hangover), which really make her rethink the direction of her life. Without so much as consulting with Charlie, she decides almost on a whim to join AA (at the suggestion of a co-worker who has been there before), while Charlie does not. At that point we are just 30 min. into the movie (hence my suggested alternative title for the movie, "Sober") and the rest of the movie plays out the strains and challenges which Kate faces with her co-workers at school, Charlie at home, and even her mom to whom she's not particularly close. I'm not going to tell you how it all plays out, as that would just ruin your viewing experience.

Couple of thoughts: Mary Elizabeth Winstead carries the film on her shoulders, and she does a terrific job at that, although certainly Aaron Paul (he of "Breaking Bad") does a credible job too. There are a couple of pivotal scenes in the second half of the movie between these two as their relationship seems to fall off a cliff after Kate joins AA, and where you can really see how Winstead just throws herself into this role. There is also a small choice role for Octavia Spencer as Jenny, Kate's sponsor at AA. Also worth mentioning is the lovely soundtrack for the movie, with a bunch of obvious and not-so-obvious indie music from the likes of Cass McCombs, Richard & Linda Thompson and, best of all, the song "Our Anniversary" by Bill Callahan (a/k/a Smog).

This movie clearly was made on a shoestring budget, but it doesn't matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw and True December 8, 2012
"Smashed" is an incredibly insightful movie about a young woman's courageous journey to personally change the legacy passed down to her by her family. Mary Beth Winstead is brilliant in her portrayal of Kate. There is no sugar coating on what lies ahead of her as she struggles with these changes. The affect on relationships, lifestyles, and convictions is raw and true. It will likely be moving and familiar to anyone trying to make personnel changes for the better, whether with substance abuse or any other major life change. This is an important piece of work with the potential for far reaching application and impact. Don't miss it.

5.0 out of 5 stars "It's just a little wine." July 5, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I really, really love this movie. So ok, yeah, we've all seen movies about addiction, particularly alcoholism, but still, this one was quite entertaining and not something one would expect.

It stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Kate Hannah, a grade school teacher who tells a lie to everybody that she's pregnant after she unexpectedly vomits in front of her students. It turns out that she had gotten drunk the night before with her husband Charlie, played by Aaron Paul. Though she probably was a bit drunk before and after she showed up for work. You see a quick glimpse of her taking a swig off of a beer while in the shower. After she pulls into the parking lot at school, she takes yet, another swig from a flask.

After a drunken night at a bar where she sings karaoke, she kind of offers a young women a ride home. I say kind of because she tells her she was offering to call her a cab and not necessarily a ride, but anyway... During the trip the other woman pulls out a crack pipe and offers her a hit. At first, after Kate pulls over to the side, she is reluctant to even consider trying it, but as we all know, peer pressure can really be a bitch. So after Kate takes a drag, we CUT TO outside somewhere where we see Kate's eyes wider and more alive than they should be. She goes on and on at a lightspeed pace about McDonalds and cheeseburgers. I only bring this up because in this scene, Mary's performance really scared me. She was all over the place. It's safe to assume that after she wakes up alone on an abandoned couch, that she must of crashed hard the night before. It's finally at this spot though that we are finally treated to the title of the movie.

After a hilarious sex scene with her husband, Kate decides to go out to get some more alcohol.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real and fun to watch June 19, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a fine story about alcoholism.
Good acting.
No gratuitous sex, violence, foul language, or glorified using.
However, just one instance which I found entertaining BUT would very likely rub someone's mother the wrong way.
Very humourous and, of course, sad in its turn.
This could easily become a treatment staple and popular among AA folk.

Films dealing with alcoholics are rarely anything less than depressing, with the rare instance of a film like the original ARTHUR (which is a hilarious and heartfelt joy to watch). Going back to THE LOST WEEKEND or DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES to more recent films like Paul Schrader's LIGHT SLEEPER, or really any film dealing with addiction made in the last 20-odd years, alcoholism and addiction are not really to be made light of anymore. It's understandable, and there are always good reasons for film and television dealing with alcoholism and addiction with the appropriate amount of gravitas. James Ponsolt's SMASHED makes a something of a case that a film about alcoholism can have dramatic weight, but can also look at it with a bit of humor in its heart, and that's thanks to a revelatory performance by Mary Elizabeth Winstead and a terrific, if perhaps underused, supporting cast.

Winstead plays Kate, a grammar school teacher who, along with her occasionally-employed rock critic husband Charlie (BREAKING BAD's Aaron Paul), have an abiding love of good times and lots of drinks. When Kate finds herself hitting bottom relatively hard (she pukes in front of her class due to her hangover, and lies about being pregnant to them and to the school's principal played by Megan Mullaly), she decides that it's time to get sober. Through the help of the school's vice-principal (Nick Offerman) who recognizes her as a drunk, he gets her into AA. But Charlie isn't terribly supportive of this, and continues to drink. Kate's mom (Mary Kay Place), a long-time functioning alcoholic, also feels that trying to get sober is a fool's errand.
