What a sorry excuse for a summer movie! No car chases! No Computer Graphic Images! Not even any Super Heroes trying to save the world from horrible villains! Just a simple, important, well-written story, told unflinchingly through superb acting and knowing direction.

So many addiction narratives make it easy to say, "That's not me. I might drink a lot, but it's not that bad." Smashed acknowledges why anybody drinks in the first place: because it's fun.
