Narrow Search


Rated PG-13 · 103 minutes · 2012

Comedy drama
We were almost ready to forgive Lawrence Kasdan for Grand Canyon and French Kiss, but then he goes and makes this soppy, time-consuming, alleged feel-gooder about Diane Keaton’s rescue dog, who gets lost in the Colorado Rockies and obliges Keaton, Kevin Kline, Dianne Wiest, Richard Jenkins, Ayelet Zurer, and sheriff Sam Shepard to experience numerous “senior moments” while searching for him. Could have been worse. Could have been Kasdan’s update of Umberto D, with Keaton as the lonely pensioner. But in the end (yes, they eventually find the mutt) it’s more like Chapter 23 of The Big Chill. The fake snow in the first reel should be the tipoff. Also questionable: composer James Newton Howard’s “borrowing” of John Lewis’ jazz tune “Django” for the music score. Written by Kasdan and his wife/collaborator Meg Kasdan, and costarring Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss. (103 min.)
