Welcome to the Rileys
Time Out says
While Stewart and Gandolfini share an easy rapport, the reasons behind Doug’s behaviour are less convincing. Though Doug is not averse to playing away from his wife (an underused Melissa Leo) with a local waffle waitress, his tenderness towards Mallory stems from the emotional chasm left by a daughter killed in a car accident, yet Ken Hixon’s script never strays beyond the obvious in explaining why Doug would act as he does towards Mallory. Director Scott could have done with borrowing some of his father’s visual bombast, his inert direction doing little more than capturing performances. Stewart lets it all hang out in a firecracker role but her damaged character never achieves the depth the weak material could have done with.
