Alex Kurtzman’s “People Like Us” seems to have been devised for audiences who want to experience an entire year’s worth of soap opera complications in a single sitting. Chris Pine plays Sam, a go-getter salesman whose estranged father has just died...

If the title weren’t enough of an indication, the name of the game in Alex Kurtzman’s People Like Us is familiarity and relatability. A serious drama about hidden truths and family, the film works hard to earn its emotional depth and thanks to...

Working with his long-time collaborator Robert Orci, Alex Kurtzman is responsible for writing and/or producing some of the biggest action and sci-fi blockbusters of the past five or six summers (plus quite a few TV shows to boot), so it's surprising...

People Like Us demonstrates how a drama can be heartfelt and bogus at the same time. Chris Pine, acting with itchy self-regard, plays a hustler who learns that his late dad (a fabled Laurel Canyon record producer) had a secret life — an illegitimate...

Critics complain that most movies are prepackaged concepts with no room for human emotions. Then along comes a sugar-coated turkey such as "People Like Us," and we sharpen our fangs. Yet it's hard to resist dissing a drama that violates the most basic...

PEOPLE LIKE US has what might have been an interesting premise: Sam (Chris Pine) shows up late to the funeral of his estranged father and is given a shaving kit containing $150,000 in cash with instructions to deliver it to his sister.

Cocky, ’80s-era Tom Cruise didn’t seem like the hardest act in the world to pull off at the time, yet few in today’s generation of the young, dumb and full of, er, confidence can match him.

People Like Us's opening sequence gives us an idea of the type of movie director Alex Kurtzman might have wanted to make. As gliding crane shots rapidly intercut with an increasingly disorienting series of close-ups, the film introduces corporate...

Smart dialogue intersperses a by-committee soap opera plot in a movie made better than the sum of its shaky narrative by three terrific actors. Elizabeth Banks, Chris Pine, and newcomer Michael Hall D’Addario exude old-fashioned movie magic, which...

In financial trouble himself, Sam (Chris Pine) is given the task of delivering $150,000 from his recently deceased father's fortune to the sister Frankie (Elizabeth Banks) and nephew Josh (Michael Hall D'Addario) he has never met.

Kurtzman and Orci are the cheeky scamps who came up the scripts for the first two Transformers movies as well as the humourless Cowboys and Aliens among others. So it's a surprise to see that their new effort is a relationship drama devoid of special...

“People Like Us” is an old-fashioned tearjerker with everything that phrase implies. It’s undeniably manipulative and sentimental but it’s also somewhat refreshing to see a drama that isn’t laced with irony, cynicism, or some form of postmodern...

Close the nominations. Contest over. The worst musical score of 2012 goes to “People Like Us,” which delivers such manipulative twinkle-twinkle-jangle-string-section compositions that even the few moments of this melodrama that would have felt...

People Like Us is based on an interesting true story. In telling the story, director Alex Kurtzman occasionally makes some decisions that undermine the veracity of the tale. The fact that it still works can be attributed to a solid cast and the sense...

“People Like Us” is that increasingly rare kind of film: an adult drama. The filmmakers seem so nervous about this prospect that they fill the movie with action-film editing and a camera that moves so restlessly through domestic life that you’d think...

Sam Harper is a fast-talking New York salesman with money and soul problems, and the way Chris Pine plays him in “People Like Us,” you either want to hit Sam or help him out. Which means the film is doing something half-right.

“People Like Us” is a tearjerker, and is pretty straightforward about it. I don’t have an issue with movies that don’t pretend to be something other than what they are. Where I do have a problem is when they aren’t successful at it.

Crisco-slick, director and co-writer Alex Kurtzman's "People Like Us" brings up the vague-sounding but crucial question of approach, and how a filmmaker's attack on a story lives or dies with a thousand separate choices.

PEOPLE Like Us has the feel of a classy TV soap opera as it traces the guilty secrets that have kept a family at arm’s length for a generation.

The DreamWorks writing-producing dream team of Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci recently hybridized the Western with sci-fi in Cowboys & Aliens, and with People Like Us they may have created another new species: the emo action film.

These filmmakers clearly didn't trust the true story this film is based on, because they force it into a trite rom-com structure that belittles the serious themes it raises. Fortunately, a strong cast makes the most of the characters, and the emotional...
