OK,Confession first. The only reason i watched this movie is because I wanted to see more of David Schwimmer after already having seen his other work. Plus, i just finished watching the 'The Last One' and was having withdrawal symptoms. I think I'm gonna get busy with the filmography of the entire Friends cast now. But still,David is different from all of them.Over time I have come to greatly admire all of David's work,be it acting or direction. He has a lot more to him then one could imagine looking at 'Ross' during his 'friends' run.

As for the movie, David is great in this drama role and the movie itself is very touching,showing a fathers love for his daughters and just how the smallest of things can turn your life upside down. And of course what happens if you drive around drunk with your daughter in the backseat. Not a good idea,that one.

All in all, its worth a watch for all David Schwimmer fans,like me.
