Reach Me reminded me of a "feel good" version of 2 Days in the Valley (another Herzfeld film).  It has a great ansamble cast, all of whom do really great job with their parts.  If you are going to watch it for Tom, you will get a good chunk of screen time.  Not as much as I was hoping for, but more than we have seen in the past few films. 

 

All the diffrent characters that meet becasue of the book really are from very diffrent walks of life, and I feel there are some great stories to be told from this.  Tom's character  Wolfie really could have his own film.  I'm not saying this just because we are on RAW, but Wolfie does steal the show.  His segment is by far the most intriguing.  I would really like to see how came to the point he is in in the film. 

 

Terry Crews was pretty funny with his part, and I also really liked Danny Aiello.  His back and forth with Tom was great.  There were some hints at a bigger story in there, and I think that could make for its own great film. The whole time I was wondering if he was drinking because of past addiction or because of Wolfie.

I thought there would be more with him, and I am guessing there is more that ended up on the cutting room floor.  Pitt did an interview where he said that Shia and himself almost go into a fight with Scott because he was spitting chew in the tank.  When he confronted him, Scott said he did it because it was in the script.  I did not see that in the film. 

 

On a side note, not that I expect every actor to know their scripts inside and out, but being a producer, I was a little shocked that Pitt did not know that before hand.  Although, a lot of producers are by name only.  And don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking Pitt.  I dig his work. He also comes off as a pretty cool guy.  I loved the comentary he did with Fincher and Norton on Fight Club.
