Comments: Best of the 8/23 Jakefest due to the cast. Sam Shepard as just the dad over there helps a lot. I've never seen Tobey Maguire pull off this level of insanity before. Natalie is strong and natural and The Jake is in his wheelhouse--a little dicey and full of Jake Juice

A big drama point which feels sideloaded onto a jailbroken film at first comes back and punches you in the face

Where did you get those underpants? They fit you pretty well

Summary: While on tour in Afghanistan, Sam's copter is shot down and he is presumed dead. Back home, it is his screw-up brother who looks after the family. Sam does return, but with a lot of excess baggage.
