:

 Nicolas Cage in this movie convincingly shows a wide range of
emotion--from quiet resignation to manic outbursts.


The most riveting moment comes in a flashback occurring at the end of
his marriage. Cage, at a pedestrian stop light, hopelessly trying to
remember to buy tartar sauce, is fixated on the tight rear end of a
female in front of him. Suddenly, a barrage of pent-up
thoughts are flushed through his mind, accelerating as he
waits. All of his confusion (psychological mayhem) vis-a-vis his
fractured family and his fill-in-the-jots job are
momentously displayed in this segment of the movie. It's a rush,
and it's a hoot.

  Hi,


I have seen this movie and liked it.  Besides having funny moments, I thought it was a little sad and poignant - there was a lot happening. Besides the problem marriage, Nicholas Cage's teenaged daughter was troubled. And, his father (played by Michael Caine, whom I've always loved) is dying.


In any event, I recommend it. I'd probably see it again.


Enjoy.

  Hi Schlomo:-)


Thank-you very much for explaining the movie to me. It sounds great and hope I will get to see it. Most of the time my Husband and I just wait till the different movies come on the tv:-)  It takes awhile to get there but  most of the movies are not good enough or fit enough to look at.

  I guess I'm spoiled. First, I can't stand commercials . And second, R-rated movies get censored on tv.


I tape all the tv dramas I am fond of--anything to avoid listening to inane commercials. And that way, I can watch the shows whenever I have the time to do so--at my convenience. If I get a phone call or someone comes over, I can stop the show and continue with it later.

  Nicolas Cage goes through a pre-mid-life crisis that numbs him at times, and at other times, it enrages him. There is a message in the film, but it is not obtrusive. The movie gets under your skin. I hope you do get a chance to see it.

Hi there:-)


Thank-you for your post:-)


Gosh it sounds like its a crazy funny movie. One that I would enjoy because I love goofy movies that  are just  a riot and not trying to tell you something.  Like for instance Planes, Trains, and automobiles. That movie was so funny and great!!!!!!!!!!! I haven't seen Nicolage Cage's movie yet but I will someday:-)
