Ben Kalmen is feeling his age, but you wouldn’t know it from the company he keeps. A former mogul with a chain of car dealerships, until legal troubles knocked him out of business, Ben now keeps a grip on the world through his relationships with women – many women. —Tiff.net
In my opinion, Douglas's performance is his best in years, almost matching up his performance in Joel Schumacher's Falling Down. He's like a bumble-bee always making the wrong decisions when he's with a woman. The light tone of the film can't always hide its darkest undertones. Recommended.
Sometimes out of fear we make poor choices. Sometimes those choices work out pretty well for a while. Sometimes the consequences of those choices catch up to us. This is the story of a man who finally begins to recognize the choices he should have made. Perhaps too late, perhaps not. Some fine, often understated, performances.
I caught this on the shelf when there wasn't much else to choose from and given I'm not a big Jesse Eisenberg fan I went in with low expectations but Douglas was a funny, charming, and reminded me of all the reasons I've enjoyed watching him over the years. He's such a talented actor - too bad age has caught up with him (and illness) though I'm sure he's not down for the count just yet. Best to him and his family->
