Yesterday evening, we saw "Reign Over Me," which stars Don Cheadle as a Manhattan dentist who tries to help his old dental school roommate, played by Adam Sandler, come to grips with the death of his wife and daughters.

Overall, "Reign Over Me" was a decent film despite seeming to drag at times. Cheadle was quite good. Sandler's performance was passable but I can't help thinking that perhaps stronger actor could have been found for the role.

A.O. Scott's somewhat critical review of "Reign Over Me" in the New York Times was deserved, I think -- although I appreciated Liv Tyler's small role more than he did.
