Reign over Me 0.0 stars

Adam Sandler drama, maybe "dramedy," definitely not comedy, stretching the comedian in the role of a 9/11 widower with PTSD, an impudent excuse for him to act like a Problem Child, hanging his Dylan-haired head, ignoring direct questions, immersing himself in video games, hiding inside his headphones, banging on a set of drums, throwing public tantrums, distracting attention from the more involving troubles and better performance of Don Cheadle as an old dental-school roommate, all to the purpose of putting off the dreaded moment of "opening up" and turning on the waterworks. Writer-director Mike Binder, intent on not making the struggle easy, succeeds in making it tedious. With Jada Pinkett Smith, Saffron Burrows, Liv Tyler. 2007.
