"How can you not like this film?? It's not 'fluffy' at all. There is no mawkish sentimentality or airbrushed deathbed scenes.
Clooney is superb as the imperfect father. The dialogue and plot are moving, funny, cliche free and unpredictable, so for me it's not a 'middle of the road' movie. It's also far better than the off beat Rampart which Time Out gave 5 stars too?"
