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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The pleasures are modest but rewarding in Bob Nelson's character study "The Confirmation."
Fresh: Feature films these days rarely come as gentle and equitable as "The Confirmation."
Fresh: The movie's not just good but moving, funny and true to the way people actually live in hard-times America.
Fresh: The Confirmation is a nice change of pace from most of the hateful violence we're getting these days-inescapably inconsequential but ultimately endearing.
I like Clive but this movie was like watching the Lifetime Channel.
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.
