Let’s just put it this way. This movie had a long way to go before it saw the light of free download. Phillip Seymour Hoffman was fantastic. He depressed the hell out of me, but he was seriously really good. The movie is sad. I continuously pictured Hoffman exactly like his character when he passed away. It’s hard to glass full it when you’re dragging that thought for and hour and a half. It was an interesting film but went no where. Not even a little bit. If I had to say something good about this film, besides the actors, it would be this film killed every single character that you wanted them to die. The film is not worth your time. Even if you are retired and living in Florida. Good watching!
Stars : Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christina Hendricks, Richard Jenkins
Cast of truly unlikeable characters make this difficult to really like but it has very strong actors in the roles and a grunge realism that is created perfectly by director Slattery. Portrays ambiguity of people. More comedic touches would have helped - a sweet-as-pie deadly sharp-shooting florist, a truckload of meat that can't be given away, a body that doesn't stay still, etc. in any other movie would have been comedy gold.

The movie had potential, the cast is nothing short of terrific and they did absolutely everything they could performance wise... They needed a better story, they script was fine, nothing great but it worked. The story was just weak.
