Negative
Negative—I could not figure out what the purpose or climax was to this movie. A few friends are lonely, and they turn to alcohol, smoking and friendship. The main couple and their son are reasonably happy, but don’t make a significant difference in the troubled people’s lives. I just don’t get the point to this movie; I do not recommend it.
My Ratings: Moral rating: Offensive / Moviemaking quality: 2½
