Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2 ):

Considering the cast, UNFINISHED BUSINESS should have been a winner. But alas, it's not. The script is really muddled and has a confusing tone. Is it a heartwarming movie about a dad figuring out how to parent kids who are struggling with bullying? Or a crass comedy about a businessman who bonds with his colleagues and turns a work trip into a wolf-pack escapade, complete with prostitutes and "glory holes"? Somehow it tries to combine the two, with befuddling and tin-eared results.

Vaughn is wasted here. His subversive genius is muted in the strangely old-fashioned and paternalistic story. He and Wilkinson have good chemistry, and Franco is funny on his own, but as a trio, they don't quite mesh, making it difficult for audiences to buy their bonding. Unfinished Business is, as its title suggests, half-baked.
