Rated R · 90 min. · 2010

Michael Douglas reaches back and delivers a performance to stand alongside his “D-Fens” and Gordon Gekko, in this otherwise iffy portrait of a man slipping into a seriously grim old age. Ruined, sixtyish New York businessman Ben Kalmen (Douglas) is seemingly trying to mend his ways after getting busted for fraud, but his instinct is always to compete – especially when it comes to women. He can’t resist being the player. This weakness continues to derail Ben’s life, as ex-wife Susan Sarandon, new stepdaughter Imogen Poots, and old buddy Danny DeVito discover. The scenario, written and directed by Brian Koppelman with help from David Levien, has a whiff of soap opera about it, but credit Koppelman and Douglas with the courage to present a thoroughly compromised character and see his comeuppance all the way through. Also with Mary-Louise Parker and Jesse Eisenberg (90 min.).
