Sentimental, if not completely satisfying, romantic comedy drama about a disgraced sneaker designer (Orlando Bloom) who, after nearly sinking his employer's footwear empire and contemplating suicide, is dispatched by his mom (Susan Sarandon) to retrieve the remains of his father -- who died unexpectedly -- in rural Kentucky. There he reconnects with his roots and, while en route, encounters a sunny, free-spirited flight attendant (Kirsten Dunst) who brightens his view and appreciation of the world. Despite a miscast Bloom and a baggy script, director Cameron Crowe's film celebrates family and love, imparting a warm and welcome message that, though full of risk, life is ultimately worth living. An implied sexual encounter, an attempted suicide, a questionable (for Catholics) dispersal of ashes, and some rough and crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
