REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..the movie's few saving graces are technical. The sound effects of the creaking and groaning vessel underscore the instability of a lone man on the water..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]
1.5 of 5

“..the film is too slight to feel so padded. Water ripples. Ducks fly. Close-ups of ice-encrusted leaves do not a deep movie make..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
2 of 5

“..the film doesn't play games; it's basically just Lucas going through a short story-like period of reflection and redemption almost entirely without dialogue. It's not enough, but it is what this underappreciated actor does best..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
“..Josh Lucas plays an alcoholic widower who undergoes a spiritual rebirth by fixing up a sailboat, and I really wish he hadn't..”
by Kyle Smith [NY Post]
“..it's revealed in a snippet of melodramatic flashback that has no emotional impact. Nor does the film as a whole..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]
