Ned (Liev Schreiber) is in the throes of a mid-life crisis. His work as a writer on an outrageous, semi-pornographic TV show is less than satisfying. His fifteen year old son has just told him he is gay and his eleven year old is afraid of, well pretty much everything. When his wife, Jeannie (Helen Hunt), moves her sick and embittered father (Brian Dennehy) from Detroit into their home in NY, it puts added stress on an already strained marriage. And when a sexy female co-worker (Carla Gugino) puts the moves on Ned, the temptation sends him spiraling. EVERY DAY is about one family's struggle to survive the unexpected curve-balls that are simply part of real life; aging and death; commitment and freedom; love and acceptance. It's an uncompromising look at an ordinary family making an extraordinary journey towards themselves and towards each other.

This actually has a decent story, about a man the is wronged by punks when they kill his wife and rape his daughter, and decides that he can no longer just sit by while innocent people are hurt for fun and greed. The action is believable, the police work actually would make sense and Charles Bronson was flat out terrific as the lead. So all in all this is a good tale of justice and revenge, and it has Jeff Goldblum trying to look like a bad ass, which makes it worth seeing all on its own.4 Beards Out Of 5

I still can recall being glued to the TV and watching in horror as the second tower came crashing to the ground. I had no idea that the day, in which started out normal, would become part of American history and would eventually be used to spring board many US lead military invasions. 5 years later Oliver Stone has brought us a big screen adaptation of the events that transpired that day. But is America actually ready to face such task that requires us to re-visit one of our darkest days? Those who believe that the focus of World Trade Center is the actual planes hitting will be fooled. The true story centers on John McLoughlin (Cage) and Will Jimeno (Pena), two port authority police officers. During their normal foot patrol, the first plane hits. McLoughlin, who is a Lieutenant, gathers his fellow officers and discuses their course of action for evacuating the building. McLoughlin and a few fellow officers brave the scattered fires and debris and work on getting people out of the second building. Things go from bad to extremely worse as the 2nd building collapses with McLoughlin and his group of officers still inside. They awaken with over 20 feet of wreckage above them. McLoughlin and Pena are the only survivors. Thus sets the stage for the rest of the film, can they hold out long enough till they themselves are rescued? Oliver Stone is an interesting director for this film. Many of his films in the past have had a very strong political motive. Just as "Platoon" and Born on the Fourth of July" had a anti-war zest to them, I expected the same with "World Trade Center". However, Stone's propaganda is very subtle this time around. One huge issue with this film that I just cannot seem to shake is the believability of the actors portraying McLoughlin and Pena's families. All act strangely muted instead of hysterical, depressed, and uncontrollable crying that one who expect from a person who has learned that their husband is still missing somewhere within the wreckage. Even with such great actresses as Maggie Gyllenhaal and Maria Bello, the acting is very subdued. I liked the idea of the film focusing on the idea of helping and saving lives rather than than the actual act of terrorism. In my opinion, I believe this movie needed to put on hold for at least another 5 years. At least until we are somewhat finished with all the wars we are involved with. With all of these events still fresh in our minds, I think that a film version is somewhat overkill considering that I'm quite sure everyone in the world has a memory longer than 10 minutes. World Trade Center isn't a bad movie. However, I would have waited for the creation of a different and better film to represent America's darkest day.
