A movie about 2 terrible people *spoilers*
Finally got around to watching this. Was surprised it wasn't better. My biggest issue is, the two leads are terrible people. First there is Jack Nicholson, a greedy scumbag who represents everything that is wrong about hospital systems today (this is not a rant about Obamacare. If you think it is, maybe you should actually research Obamacare. Plus, this came out in 2007). Even more mind boggling, after all the discussion about the character's business practices, Nicholson's character never undergoes any transformation where he cleans up his business ethics. Yeah, I get the daughter thing but in the end, he is still Scrooge.
Next we have Freeman's character who abandons his wife and family. I can almost understand that arc but he still doesn't win any points. Maybe he earned it but the story should have been told where his wife encourages him to go. Terrible writing.
Add this to the fact that the two actors had zero chemistry and spent a huge chunk of the movie in front of an obvious green screen and you have a movie that should have been produced by and shown on the Hallmark Channel.
