Then there is the characters -- none of which I could identify with. There was no depth to them in my opinion, and they all seemed pretty one-dimensional. The script was pretty much the same way.

The performances from the cast were fine, but they were handed a pretty weak script that just didn't give the cast the opportunity to shine. None of them stood out in my opinion, even Tom Hanks, who also directed.

There was some drama in this film, but nothing really stood o...
