Movie Summary

Director:
Matt Mulhern
Released:
2005
Rating:
R
Duane Hopwood stars David Schwimmer as a down-on-his-luck divorced father of two who works the night shift as a pit boss at Ceasars Palace in Atlantic City. Heartsick about the demise of his marriage to Linda (Janeane Garofalo), and the subsequent disintegration of their family, Duane's life is in a tailspin. When his visitation rights are threatened after he's caught driving while intoxicated, Duane is forced to confront the realization that the time has come to get his life back on track before he loses everything. It is a moving, humorous, and often outrageous look at the limits of unconditional love, what defines a family, and how we're all responsible for our own happiness. A celebration of life in all its imperfections.
