Small and significant portrayal of alcoholism

Minus the weird sex scene that lasts maybe 3 seconds, the movie is fine to show teenagers. No over-dramatic acting from Will here; he plays a man who's lost it all. He's at rock bottom and he keeps on slipping down. Very well-made subtle indie that has a great cast for Ferrell to work with.

Smart, poignant dramedy puts alcoholism front and center.

this moving drama, based on a short story by Raymond Carver, is far from the usual broad comedies that star Will Ferrell is known for. Though inflected with humor, it’s a serious and sobering (no pun intended) movie about a man slipping over the brink of life -- giving in to his alcoholism and losing his marriage and all his belongings. There’s some swearing (including "s--t" and "f--k"), a few brief sexually charged scenes (with partial nudity and kink), and loads and loads of drinking (the lead character is an alcoholic, after all).
