And So It Goes

What's it about:

There are a million reasons not to like realtor Oren Little, and that's just the way he likes it. Willfully obnoxious to anyone who might cross his path, he wants nothing more than to sell one last house and retire in peace and quiet—until his estranged son suddenly drops off a granddaughter he never knew existed and turns his life upside-down. Clueless about how to care for a sweet, abandoned nine-year-old, he pawns her off on his determined and lovable neighbour, Leah, and tries to resume his life, uninterrupted. But, little by little, Oren learns to open his heart—to his family, to Leah, and to life itself.

What the critics say:

Everything about the movie is as uninspired as the title.
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews

And So It Goes may touch the frayed heartstrings of some older viewers, but it's pretty bad - the failed attempt to Heimlich a venerable movie genre.
- Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine

This film is the cinematic equivalent of comfort food.
- Richard Roeper, Richard

Everything seems to work out so perfectly here that the film is less about life's rich rewards and more about light-hearted convenience.
- Bruce Bennett, Spectrum

There are a million reasons not to like Oren Little. Just ask everyone.
