4.0 out of 5 stars Watch Clean and Sober instead of 28 days! 25 Aug 2012
I recently watched the Sandra Bullock vehicle 28 days, oh dear! It deals with the same subject matter and reminded me of this, a much better film. Then came Trainspotting an even harsher look at drug taking. Anyway i recommend this film if the title takes your fancy(it`s not a comedy!), Keaton is a very versatile actor and the supporting cast is great too. Other reviews have gone into more depth so i`ll keep mine short. Wish the dvd was cheaper though.

4.0 out of 5 stars a sober decision 13 Jan 2006
By fix8_me
Although added to the shopping basket the purchase of this film was aborted. Why? It is a gem, and there is no question of Keaton's formidable talent. He's at his edgy best in this film, equal to his role as Carter Hayes in Pacific Heights, but like that film, his performance is compromised by a meandering screenplay. As the protagonist in Clean and Sober, Keaton's character is a desperate and opportunistic yuppie drug addict who inadvertently ends up on the road to recovery and abstinence. It is possible to accept that, but a love story seems clumsily grafted onto a film that in the end tries to accomplish too much. Instead of savouring the moments of genuine brilliance (like the closing monologue) there are some laugh aloud, and cringeworthy ones. The former work owing to Keaton's range, but the latter forced a reluctant click on the delete button. Having said that, if the opportunity arises, this movie is compulsory viewing. Morgan Freeman appears in a literal supporting role as a rehab caseworker, and he's a dependable foil in that part. In fact, it is the appropriately understated roles that add gravitas at critical junctures. It may not have aged well, but few offerings from the 1980s will. One to rent, if you can.

5.0 out of 5 stars UNDERRATED KEATON - at his best! 10 Jan 2011
By Zus
I purchased this some years ago, and I got it on Reg 1 very cheap (approx $7) I recently watched it again for the 5th time and then decided to do a net search, it's discussed on Youtube a bit, but this under rated movie is not that widely known to buy on DVD and not around in the United Kingdom at all!!

Sad, as its a spectacular performance from he who was Batman!

My copy actually arrived in a right old state, but luckily the disc had just been bashed off the inner spindle of an older type clip case DVD, but after inspection and having travelled 1000's of miles to me from the US, it was fine.

All I can say is, hunt it down at a good price as its a masterpiece - extremely moving and heartfelt performances from all the cast.

Mr K is stunning, and I have no restriction in recommending this heart ripping movie at all.

Alongside the brilliant "Pacific Heights" this is a Keaton classic, miss it at your immense loss!
