Top critical review
I really wanted to like it

I only became aware of this film from a John Prine video. He’s in the cast, and was asked to write a song which plays during the end credits. The song, “In Spite of ourselves”, is the highlight of the movie. Every character is quirky, and you have to be careful with quirky, or you end up with ‘just weird with no reason for it, and now you’re just unappealing’…with this great cast, I was thinking that it can’t be as bad as some of the reviews. It was worse.
