Reign Over Me
Source: Catholic News Service
Singularly offbeat, albeit poignantly etched, buddy film about a successful dentist (Don Cheadle) who meets up with and tries to rehabilitate his college roommate (Adam Sandler), once a dentist himself and now sadly childlike, suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of his wife and children perishing Sept. 11, 2001, and in the process comes to terms with some of his own emotional issues. Writer/director Mike Binder's drama is well-intentioned, and Sandler pulls off a difficult part with distinction, but the script is paradoxically original yet formulaic with often implausible character motivation, though the 9/11 theme and Sandler's heart-wrenching character tug at the emotions. Pervasive rough and crude language and occasional profanity, some forthright and crass sexual discussion, and emotional outbursts. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
