JR is a fatherless boy growing up in the glow of a bar where the bartender, his Uncle Charlie, is the sharpest and most colorful of an assortment of quirky and demonstrative father figures. As the boy’s determined mother struggles to provide her son with opportunities denied to her — and leave the dilapidated home of her outrageous if begrudgingly supportive father — JR begins to gamely, if not always gracefully, pursue his romantic and professional dreams, with one foot persistently placed in Uncle Charlie’s bar.

A solid coming of age memoir that coasts mostly on the cast. The film meanders in a way, which is a positive and a negative, the positive is that it feels real, the negative is that doesn’t always make the best movie. But again the cast really makes it and it feels like something people would fawn over more if it didn’t have the Affleck or Clooney names attached.

A surprise coming of age story. Ben Affleck definitely has a type cast, but the movie is a warm hearted, feel good movie. It's an 8.5, but usually round up unless really bad. The cinematography was really good, which was a surprise in itself. I wasn't expecting that at the beginning of the film when it showed George Clooney directing. Someone said memoirs don't translate well. This does, but it's not really memoirs don't translate well into movies. In my observations over the years, memoirs that cut a little too close to home often leave the viewer off balance. Is that the viewer's issue or the movie's?

This film, written by William Monahan and directed by George Clooney on autopilot is yet another shallow glimpse into the formative years of an wannabe writer. This is hardly virgin territory, having already been thoroughly covered by the likes of Unstrung Heroes, Almost Famous, and Neil Simon’s More

It's not often I find myself writing this, but Ben Affleck is comfortably the best thing about this otherwise rather lacklustre adaptation of JR Moehringer's autobiographical coming of age tale. It depicts the story of his childhood - through the eyes of the engaging young Daniel Ranieri - before he More

I think slice-of-life films have a disadvantage over those that are structured around more linear and external dramatic narratives. In murder mysteries for example, the plot alone might be enough to keep viewers invested, as they try to anticipate the twists and turns and identify the culprit. On More
