"Comeback Season" is a pretty good comedy/drama.
12 May 2010 | by tarbosh22000See all my reviews

"Comeback Season" is a pretty good comedy/drama.

Walter Pearce (Liotta) had it all: His beautiful wife Debra (Headly) and a great job. Until he confesses to her that he had an affair. She throws him out and he has to live with his neighbor Skylar (Shaun Sipos) a former high school football star. Now they have to get their lives back.

The biggest reason to see this is for Liotta's performance. He is excellent. He brings a perfect balance of humor and drama to it. The scenes when he has to confess and apologize are very well-acted. Headly and Sipos also put in good performances. The ending is a little sappy but it works. The only problem with the movie is the occasional audio drop-outs in some scenes. It looks like they edited something by muting some of the dialogue. It's distracting.

But overall, "Comeback Season" is worth-watching.
