Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This is not a simple, uplifting tale. It's never clear whether Charlie will fully recover, and that sense of realism is the film's strength.
Fresh: Movies about male friendship are often trivialized with the 'buddy' tag, but this one resonates beyond that.
Rotten: Reign Over Me isn't nearly as arresting as it should be given its powerful subject matter.
Fresh: Cheadle is good, as always, but Sandler's portrayal of a guy on the perennial brink of a psychotic breakdown is amazing.
Sandler at his best
This was a truly moving film, it was able to portray the pain of one man and give another man a different look on life, This movie is great I hope that anyone that watches it is moved the same way I was. Acting from both Don Cheade and Adam Sandler is a great chemistry. Hands-down Five Stars.
Worth every penny!
I saw a preview of this in the movie theater and didn't get to see the actual film. I love any Adam Sandler movie (even his slightly more serious roles), so when I saw this on iTunes, I wanted to buy it. Let me just say this is probably one of the best movies I've ever seen in a long time! I highly recommend it; Adam Sandler is fantastic along with the rest of the cast!
This has to be one of my favorite movies. This definately is one of Adam Sandlers more serious movie roles. I laughed, cried, etc. =P 5 Stars!
