The marriage of construction worker Nick Murder (Gandolfini) goes into freefall when his wife, Kitty (Sarandon), discovers he has taken a mistress, Tula (Winslet). As Kitty enlists her Cousin Bo (Walken) to track down Tula, and his youngest daughter (Mandy Moore) falls for a wannabe rock star (Bobby Cannavale), Nick’s predicament goes from worse to godawful.
Terrific as a musical, indifferent as a drama, the movie’s great cast fails to rescue a scattershot approach. See it, though, for Walken on inspired form.
