Us Rating: ** 1/2

As Cathy, a frustrated wife and mom crusading to improve her life after she's diagnosed with cancer, Laura Linney swings from wistful to cutesy. Her talent aside, that zigzagging makes for uneven viewing. It's also disappointing that Cynthia Nixon and Gabourey Sidibe are relegated to ho-hum supporting roles. (Sony, $35)
