Miss You Already Review - AVClub

AVClub: Late in the weepie cancer story Miss You Already, oil-rig worker Jago (Paddy Considine) comforts his pregnant wife Jess (Drew Barrymore) after a big, painful blowout with her best friend Milly (Toni Collette). “No more drama, all right?” he pleads. “I promise,” she answers, because people in movies are absolutely terrible about making promises they can’t keep. It’s unclear why anyone in the middle of a high-risk pregnancy, a personal emotional conflagration, a sometimes troubled marriage, and a movie like this would think she could get away with swearing off drama. And sure enough, the promise barely lasts out the scene. This is a movie about personal drama. Veering away from it would be like 101 Dalmatians deciding to ditch the dogs 30 minutes into the story.

The story is too old to be commented.
