For Your Anticipation: My Friend Carl

Best case scenario for the wide stream audiences this weekend? They steer away from "New Year's Eve" and towards "The Sitter". That's somewhat cruel to be honest, as we're so close to getting to the entertaining blockbusters and quality cinematic dramas. But all the same, we're so close to the end that this shouldn't be our strongest option. Sure, it looks fun in that Judd Apatow enterprise sort of way, but nothing that'll really transcend simple laughs. Am I asking too much? Maybe so, but films like "In Bruges" have managed strong laughs with compelling character work. How can American cinema not learn from that?
