    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    The power of this great movie -- part comedy, part tragedy, part satire, mostly masterpiece -- is in the details.

    This is a superb film and one of Nicholson's great performances, tamped down but magnetic.

    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    This ambitious, entertaining movie, which showed at film festivals earlier this year, has been hailed in some quarters as a masterpiece worthy of Arthur Miller's Willy Loman or Sinclair Lewis's George Babbitt. Yet its social comments are stained by condescension, and its uplift is sustained by sentimentality that Mr. Nicholson's prickly Everyman can't conceal.
