I am not a big fan of Paul Giamatti, but his performances are solid. We saw Win Win this past weekend with some pals, a very funny movie. Don't let the R rating fool you,
any 14 year old could see this film,
assuming they have heard the F bomb before.
The story is set in NJ, but it was filmed right here in LV, which would explain why I was seeing these annoying signs all over town last summer long before I ever heard of the movie. I won't give the plot away, but the cast does a fine job of selling a complex story with honest emotions and lots LOL humor.
I especially liked Amy Ryan, who played the wife, and Bobby Carnavale, as the best friend from high school who stole more than one scene in the movie.
Win Win is a good film that gives you more than cheap laughs and a thin story. Moral questions are explored and the answers are just as complicated as the questions.
Somebody should really design something better for wrestlers to wear than those singlets...
