    Few mainstream romantic comedies are so brazen or as unconvincing in their third acts. As if the movie were embarrassed about the tidy way it wraps things up, it trots Haddish out for a silly coda that reminds us how little we saw of her during the film's final hour. show more

    Too much of Nobody’s Fool makes do with well-worn exchanges and contrived, overheard conversations. show more
