Pretty riveting stuff until that ending. Five stars for Johnnie Mae!!!
on August 10, 2016
I bought this to see the performance of my favorite rising star: Johnnie Mae. She portrayed the mother of Tracy Morgan's character, Vincent. She is so convincing as the mother of a mentally ill young man with no direction in his life. Their background story is so sad. It's the first time I've seen Tracy Morgan in a dramatic role, and he made me feel for his character. The end was heartbreaking and if not for the anticlimactic denouement I would say I don't know why so many people give this film such a low rating. But having seen the end of it, I can say that this is the reason. Otherwise, the actors were solid. The writer just seemed to run out of ideas toward the end because I saw that ending coming from a mile away.
