      Audience Member Good example of a dumb indie comedy that doesn't really do anything worth watching. Means well but comes off like a clique we have seen a trillion times before. Good example that modern day directors dont know how to make a teen movie anymore. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A sweet poignant film about a young man trying to find himself and cope with his mother's death and father's pressure to grow up. Great acting by Phillip Vaden. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member If you enjoyed “Juno,” “The Prizewinner of Defiance, Ohio,” and “Waitress,” you will love this movie! Well paced screenplay with sincere, realistic dialogue. You know it is great acting when they don’t even look like they are acting. Teenagers are not the only people who have angst. Will make my list of best movies I’ve seen in 2009. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member In a perfect world everything goes the way we planed, unfortunately the world is far from perfect and things scarcely workout the way we want. As seen in this film, sometimes life has different plans for us and those we love. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A big surprise. Nice performances and a story that could have easily been taken in a formulaic direction but surprise at every turn. Nice work. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Let me save you 85 minutes of your time (which will feel like eternity if you watch this flick). DO NOT RENT! RENTER OR BUYER BEWARE! You WILL end up in a coma. In all seriousness, it was lame. As my dear brother-in-law pointed out that when a movie basis its synopsis by comparing it to other movies it is not a good sign. Garden State my foot. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
