When the star power of the 3 main actors in this movie produces such disappointing results, it's hard to understand why. The acting is good, but the storyline is not cohesive. Granted this film is not meant to be rocket science, but it's hard to figure out what it is meant to be. I thought it would be a comedy, but the plot seems to aim for deeper meaning and sometimes seems to achieve it. The romance ending was quite predictable, but other plot lines are left hanging, ie, will the father (Jack Nicholson) end up doing jail time for 25 yrs? -- that's not exactly comedic material.
