Comedy / Drama / War
In 2003, 30 years after they served together in the Vietnam War, former Navy Hospital Corpsman Larry "Doc" Shepherd re-unites with ex-Marines Sal and Mueller on a different type of mission: to bury Doc's son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War. Doc decides to forgo burial at Arlington Cemetery and, with the help of his old buddies, takes the casket on a bittersweet trip up the East Coast to his home in suburban New Hampshire.

I wanted to like this movie
But in the end it was just a big meh.
Overly long and not very well scripted - which is a shame as it was a great cast.
OMG what a pointless boring horrific waste of time and acting skill. Great actors sure.. I can't blame them at all as all three have more than proven themselves elsewhere... but for this movie but that didn't help one iota
However that said.. this movie while I wanted to like it was horrific! I've watched some really bad sh*t over the years.. including many very pathetic B movies that had a budget of a case of beer that were better done.. (Check out my other reviews for examples of some really bad movies)/.
Seriously though.. the director has crafted what can only be called a pointless steaming pile of crap.. this movie was so bad did something shocking to those that know me and how many movies I've watched..
I TURNED IT OFF mid movie!!!!!
It's insanely rare for me to ever turn off a movie before watching it all (barring emergency/other obligations etc obviously).. well this was one of those few.. I just couldn't take it anymore.. it was putting me into a coma!!
Seriously.. it was so absolutely pathetic I killed it after forcing myself to suffer through aprox. 2/3 in the desperate hope that it would somehow get better. That somehow the acting talent presented in the 3 leads would somehow get to shine... that hell some idiot on set would accidentally knock over the nearest pail of water onto the power cables to shock some life into this pathetic mess..
Sadly this was not to be.. do yourself a huge favor.. DON'T waste the time even starting to watch this piece of crap..
The really sad thing is I'm always comparing bad movies by default to anything Ewe boll has touched... and he's so far out to lunch he thinks hes god gift to cinema while being the opposite in reality.. and this pos excuse for a morie does to tbe best of my knowledge not involve him at all.. scary thought..
The director should b so far beyond ashamed of this it's not funny... and the 3 main leads.. god help their careers if they ever sign on with him or anything this bad ever again.. I doubt their careers would survive such again regardless of their acting skill.
In the great wise words of Monty Python and this movie:
RUN AWAY!!! RUN AWAYYYYYYYY!!!!!

Larry 'Doc' Shepherd (Steve Carell) tracks down sarcastic bar owner Sal Nealon (Bryan Cranston). At first, Sal doesn't recognize Vietnam War acquaintance Doc. They go track down fellow vet Reverend Richard Mueller (Laurence Fishburne). Doc reveals that his marine son was killed in Iraq 2 days earlier and is set to be buried at Arlington Cemetery.
I am a big fan of Richard Linklater. He certainly has a tendency to lean towards some experimentation. I am most disappointed in the flat, extended nature of this movie. With these three great actors, I expected much much more and there is no reason to take two hours to get there. Nevertheless, these are great actors. It may have helped if some flashbacks of the Vietnam days be included. The movie has a rambling unfocused nature which is not helped by the simple filmmaking. I'm fine with Carell's quiet suffering but I wanted an explosion somewhere. Cranston tries his best to be irreverent. Fishburne is cool. I don't necessarily have any big problems but I want better.
