This film succeeds in crafting characters that you care about by the time the credits roll around. Both Topher Grace and Dennis Quaid come up strong, though the screenplay feels a little bloated at time, or there are many more quiet moments than the trailers would lead you to expect. It's not a full-on comedy, but the funny moments come out of the real life drama and circumstances. All in all, a pleasant viewing experience, and it leaves you wanting just a little more. I give it 3 stars, or a grade of B.
