    This movie is hilarious, not just funny! The movie has a great cast (esp the fabulous William H. Macy), locations are perfect, music is great, & humor is perfectly timed. It's a great movie to see with friends or a really cool date movie. Run, don't walk to see it!

    Very funny film. Saw it this afternoon. Know it was a big hit at last year's Tribeca Film Festival and was impatiently waiting to see it. William H. Macy is hilarious as the father character and it really was a smart comedy. Kind of a mixture of a Woody Allen meets Superbad. Cheryl Hines of Curb Your Enthusiasm was also great as the mother character. Great South Florida Locations and the soundtrack seemed perfect for each scene. A definite winner in my book... check it out.

    Silly and fun. WIlliam Macy plays a middle aged man trying out being single again in the dating world. His son, struggling geek to get a prom date. Some very funny moments. Adult humor.
