Rating:
R
Shrink is 2008 comedy that tells the story of Henry Carter (Kevin Spacey), a psychiatrist whose client base includes an impressive list of A-list actors and writers. However, with so much work, Henry barely has to time to deal with his own demons and in the bright lights of Hollywood, he begins to see himself hating anything and anyone that he deals with. All of that changes when a troubled teenage girl (Keke Palmer) steps into his office one day with high hopes and dreams about becoming a force in Hollywood. As she explains how she is obsessed with all things related to movies, Henry begins to wonder in his present state of mind, if it wise for him to take on her case considering she is enamored with the same world that he has become jaded from. This young woman was offered as a pro-bono case and he has the option to back out if he wants. On the other hand, this young woman might be the catalyst to finally help Henry put a mirror up to his own life and deal with his problems. Shrink was written by Thomas Moffett and directed by Jonas Pate.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 60

    Variety

    The film may be too inside-baseball, with strained sympathy and contrived emotions.

  • 50

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    These characters are mostly too sketchy and their connections too contrived for Shrink to jell as an incisive ensemble piece.

  • 40

    Los Angeles Times

    Ironically for a film revolving around psychotherapy, Shrink doesn't stand up to analysis.
