A heavily padded, thinly conceived, well-meaning movie.

It's the showy story, script, and even staging that wear a fella out in this relentlessly precious feature debut by writer-director Jordan Roberts.
Gentlemen, it's a male chick flick - "The Dirty Secrets of the Ya-Ya Brotherhood."
Self-consciously mannered yet fitfully interesting, Around the Bend gets the most mileage it can from the eccentric, low-key charisma of Christopher Walken.
The movie, unfortunately, doesn't really work; it's one of those films where the characters always seem to be Behaving, as if ordinary life has to be jacked up into eccentricity.
Slick, well-packaged emotional drama.
Mr. Walken performs with a marvelously minimalist precision.
A bittersweet relationship drama with enough honest emotion and gentle humor to move even the steeliest heart.
