Title should be changed from HERO to LOSER. i am a Sam Elliott fan but this one of his worst.
Mustash way over done. Wonder how the women liked kissing a broom? Was that his real hair? He had quite the mop? What kind of cancer did he have? Now that i am writing this review days later I can't recall most of the story line???? Maybe I fell asleep.

Sam Sam Sam..why on earth did you pick this sleeper? are you short on money? did you just like the fact that it was like the 60's man?? weed, women,wine?...I get that it might be something you could relate to, the whole life achievement thing and past glory, but you have done some really good work and for my money have always been a "sure thing" when it comes to spending my time on a film that at LEAST you are in it.....hope you find another script that lets you redeem yourself

Sam Elliot is not a very good actor and his performance in this movie proved it. He is a mustache with a deep voice that advertisers like to have represent their products. He thinks acting is tilting your head and looking at someone. After watching 3/4 of the movie we finely turned it off asking each other what was this movie all about? and neither had an answer. Don't waste any time watching this poor excuse for a movie. I will add this movie to my 5 worst movies watched.

I love Sam Elliott. I did not like this move. It was a slice of life film. No start, no ending, lots of pointless noise in the middle. Did not care for any of the characters, all unlikable. Its one of those films, that after you watch, you say to yourself " Well, there's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back."

Dull, slow, and sad. A huge disappointment.

Sam Elliot is always watchable, even if the material is not. The story itself we've seen many times and with a different actor may have been a complete bomb. But... there's something mesmerizing about Sam Elliot (and not just the 'stach!)

I'm a big Sam Elliott fan. Usually westerns or action movies are what I go for. Take the fact that he has a woman interested in him that us very much younger than he is, I thought he did an epic job in this show as it shows a man struggling with his mortality and a life he thinks has added up to nothing. The most moving scene was when he was in trying out for the movie and he couldn't get through the dialogue because of his relationship with his daughter. He was excellent there. And also when she did her stand up comedy routine and he listened and then walked out. It was thought provoking in that it made me feel how hurt I would have felt . . . and embarrassed. Now that I've given it all away, have fun watching it . . . or not.

Slow. Confusing. Another vanity piece for 70+ year old men who dream of twenty-something women throwing themselves (at least their naked bodies) at old men. There really is no meaning to the story line except that alcoholic, drug abusing narcissists can get cancer, too.

All throughout this movie I kept looking for some meaning, something to tie it together.

At the end I finally realized his speech was the whole point.

Anyone who can sit through this without walking out, turning it off or falling asleep deserve a Lifetime Achievement Award.
