Goofs

Before Henry's first night shift, he is wearing a blue shirt, which he presumably takes off to change into his uniform. When he is shown walking home the morning after his first night shift he is wearing a red shirt. After walking in the front door of his house and going to his bedroom, he is wearing the blue shirt again, which he pulls off, and collapses into his bed, exhausted, face down and shirtless. When he wakes up later that day, instead of being shirtless, he is now wearing a white t-shirt. See more »

The First half hour or so was Torture!
9 March 2018 | by mikerjonesSee all my reviews

They said this guy was in nursing school because he couldn't afford medical school. But they didn't say much about how old he was. On a maturity level, I would guess 17 maybe. The sister is obviously older and much smarter. My wife and I debated turning this off for the first 45 minutes or so. This kid is so immature and downright stupid. Can there really be someone that dumb? In New York City?

Anyway I won't give it away, but the female lead is terrific. And beautiful. The sister is the brains of the family and the mother is the heart. The kid is just a poor smuck trying to grow up. He has a hard time 'getting it.'

Special shout-out to Annete O'Toole, the mom, Rachel Leigh Cook, the sister and Snoop Dogg as the co-worker.
