Watched It - August 12, 2011

Stars - Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Cooper, Kevin Costner
Director - John Wells
Rating - R (primarily for language)

In 20 Words or Less - Three men at different stages of life must cope with the loss of their well-paying, white-collar jobs.
Themes - Family, Career, Pride, Success, Happiness, Uncertainty, Choices
Pros - The movie takes a very realistic, down-to-earth approach and has an overall positive message to communicate about what really matters in life.
Cons - The strong language seemed extraneous and a bit overdone.
Movie Moment - The scene between Ben Affleck's character and his wife when Ben feels he is an utter failure and his wife lovingly disagrees.
Genuineness - 7 out of 10
