Against the desolate backdrop of a Chicago winter, angst-ridden TV weather man Dave Spritz (Cage) tries to keep his career on track. His personal life is a wreck, too — he’s separated from his wife (Davis), his son’s in trouble with the police, his daughter can’t stop eating and his disapproving dad (Caine) has some bad news for him...
Billed as a quirky, character-driven comedy, Verbinski’s sabbatical from Pirates Of The Caribbean is, despite stalwart performances from Cage, Davis and Caine, about as fun as sitting in a soaking wet overcoat for 90 minutes.
