Chaos Theory

The Checklist

1) Solid performances. CHECK.
2) Capable direction. CHECK.
3) Appealing balance between comedy and drama. CHECK.
4) Likeable characters. CHECK.
5) Plausibility. CHECK.
6) Brisk pace. CHECK.

The Cards
1) Plans vs. Whims vs. Fate
2) Fatherhood: Nature or Nurture?
3) Gun control.

Shuffle, shuffle, shuffle, shuffle, shuffle.

The Outcome
A well-made "happily ever after" film lacking thematic resolutions and missing out on its potential.
