About the Movie

Clive Owen shines in this irresistible comedy as Walt, a down-on-his luck carpenter tasked with entertaining his eight-year-old son Anthony while Anthony's mom (Maria Bello) and her new husband are away. But when Walt's prized toolbox is stolen, a quiet father-and-son weekend turns into an adventure of a lifetime. Aided by an oddball drywall repairman (Patton Oswalt), Walt and Anthony go on a wildly funny search for the thieves—and find something they never imagined: a true family connection.

I like Clive but this movie was like watching the Lifetime Channel.

OK, but...

Its genre is set as a comedy. More of a drama. I watched the movie completely so that says something. Certainly not worth the high rating of 92%. Possibily if the genre is changed my expectations would of been completely different...

A slow starter but strong finisher

For all those kids out there that had to live separated from a parent.
