Matthew Broderick is now teetering on the verge of being dangerously typecast. Though he remains fitfully amiable as an actor, the 47-year-old thespian seems condemned, at this point, to playing the sad-sack, slightly corpulent, whiny middle-aged loser. It worked triumphantly in Election
, impressively in You Can Count on Me
-- and somewhat less memorably in Helen Hunt’s Then She Found Me
. In tyro director/scribe Josh Goldin’s drama Wonderful World
, a variation on this stock character returns -- this time, as in the Hunt movie, to satisfactory but not spectacular results.
Wonderful World is a two-and-a-half-dimensional mess...
