makes you think about your own life. especially with kids, what happened to you. where did the time go?
Very good, thoughtful story that will absolutely resonate with men with kids who are older.
Writer-director Mike White has crafted a painfully funny and surprisingly moving character piece, but what’s most remarkable is how he and his star empathize with Brad’s feelings of inferiority while, at the same time, pinpointing the arrogance, privilege and callousness that often factor into such soul-searching.
Brad's Status is good enough to make you wish it were even better: tighter, bolder, sharper. But it's a droll, affecting movie — and, in its exploration of a man's fantasies of success and fears of failure, his trudge through the weeds of pessimism toward optimism, a distinctly American one.
With little drama or humor, it mostly amounts to watching a guy complain about his fairly decent life for 100 minutes.
