James Gandolfini and Kristen Stewart Receive Praise for 'Welcome to the Rileys'

James Gandolfini and Kristen Stewart are praised in Jake Coyle's Associated Press review of Jake Scott's Welcome to the Rileys.

The film itself gets a detailed plot description, good words for Scott's understated direction, and a major complaint about Ken Hixon's screenplay of the "save-the-prostitute-with-a-golden-heart" variety.

Below are a couple of snippets in which Coyle discusses Gandolfini and Stewart:

The scenes between Doug and Mallory are the best thing in Welcome to the Rileys - Gandolfini, with a believable and not overstated Southern accent, plays reformer. Stewart, in what may be her best performance yet, warms to his caring while vacillating between hard rage.

She's all elbows, shifty eyes and a nest of hair. Stewart has the habit of biting her bottom lip, a gesture she should be careful not to overuse. But she's a captivating blend of fragility and strength.
