Format: Blu-ray
It's all relative. For a Hollywood film with a big star, this look at a man deeply, profoundly scarred and damaged by loss (Charlie; Adam Sandler) and the slow rebuilding of his friendship with his dental school roommate who wants to help (Alan; Don Cheadle) is often refreshingly honest about the complexities of mental illness, and the fact that there is no magic bullet for pain for any of us.

On the other hand, there are a number of contrivances, forced plot twists and supporting characters that remind us we are indeed in a Hollywood dramady, not real life.

Cheadle does some amazing low key work in the less showy of the two main roles, giving us a man in mid-life crisis, disconnected from his family and his own heart, who perks up when he gets involved with the damaged Charlie. It's partly because helping someone gives his life meaning, but also because part of him envies Sandler's adolescent-like freedom to act out, even if it comes from a wounded and destructive place. Sandler struggles more with the pathetic Charley, partly because the character's pain and PTSD has created a man almost hollow. That may be accurate, but it can make him hard to identify with. Also, the ways Charlie's illness suddenly manifests can seem a bit 'story convenient'. There's no question Sandler has the chops to be heartbreaking as a wounded soul (Punch-Dunk Love, Funny People), but here the thousand yard stare and the mumbled words sometimes feel more like an acting choice than a real expression of pain so deep it can't be handled.

Another problem area are the women characters, who seem a bit trapped in the old Madonna/whore bind. They are either cold and unsympathetic, or a very male fantasy -- either gorgeous sexual predators, or beautiful nurturers or both.

A good solid film, but I can't help wishing the great one that seemed to be lurking underneath had found its way to the surface.

This movie is awesome and a great insight into the world of a man who is tortured by regret and sorry and the past. As always Adam Sandler does and great job and him and Cheadle act well together.
