Comedy, Drama, Romance
Jeff Daniels squanders his considerable talents on this lusterless dramatic comedy, playing the reclusive, misanthropic author of a happy-faced New Age best seller titled Me and God. His love interest is upbeat chiropractor Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls), who almost elevates her weak part into a character. Life lessons are learned, souls are redeemed, and an independent bookstore is rescued from bankruptcy. Writer-director John Hindman tinctures this treacle with satire that only make the rest of it seem more cloying. R, 95 min.
