For a film that is in the Criterion collection this disappointed me a little. It wasn’t bad by any means but I was expecting a hell of a lot more out of it. At times it drags but is often picked up by it’s witty dialogue and humor. The characters are interesting enough to care for but at the same time I lacked empathy for most of them. The whole ending seems too rushed and I was semi unfulfilled. It’s decent though and worth the watch for the acting of Albert Brooks and William Hurt. Jack Nicholson has a good 10 minutes of screentime too which is nice. James L. Brooks almost had a masterpiece but failed to connect all of the pieces.
