In fact, this qualifies as his best and most easygoing film performance in a good decade.
At this point you might be forgiven for mistaking the film for an extended Hilton commercial.

Frankly, the entire cast is fantastic, making more of a story that starts off promisingly but winds up in all too familiar places.
Common Sense Media
Its an encouraging premise, and one which is squandered in every way imaginable by this weedy and entirely second guessable comic drama.
The story had a chance to be more dynamic and energetic than it was, but overall it did a fine job presenting an alternate reality cautionary tale.

Theres nothing resembling a surprise in this movie, but its simple tune works due to the quality of the performances.
The chemistry between Pacino and his cast mates gives this lightly amusing contrivance surprising emotional resonance.
One of the things that partly excuses the movies mush is that its a kind of musical.
The Globe And Mail
Its a subtle performance, suggesting lots of thought and suppressed emotion.
Hugely, irresistibly enjoyable, with star chemistry to spare, genuine laughs and tears, and the bonus of apt Lennon songs on the soundtrack.
Every emotional moment has its comedic counterpoint, keeping the movie light, easy and utterly low stakes.
The movie itself is like Danny; its gaudy, a little flabby, and quite a bit shameless, but it has an almost irresistible charm and a huge smile, and y ..

Their time together is melancholy and charming and includes some of the films funniest bits.
The film is beautifully punctuated by Lennons best post Beatles songs.
Its cute, with an R rated edge that doesnt insult the sensibilities of the AARP audience this should appeal to.

New York Post
A story about soul searching, it should appeal to folks old enough to remember the 60s, and to those who wish they could have been there.
The plot is so preposterous its hard to believe it claims to be based on a true story.

You dont have to believe any of it to enjoy a lot of it, however.
So shameless is this movies urge to batter you into laughter and tears that you give in, exhausted and maybe even a little grateful.
Ive made this comparison before, but this kind of movie is the cinematic equivalent of comfort food.
