  • This is an odd little directorial debut from Matthew Lillard - the onetime Shaggy from "Scooby-Doo," now a solid character actor thanks to "The Descendants" and "Trouble with the Curve" - but it has its rewards. show more

  • A commendably restrained loser-turns-winner tale offering an unexpected second showcase for Terri star Jacob Wysocki, Matthew Lillard's Fat Kid Rules the World is less colorful than its grandeur-deluded title suggests. show more

    It\'s a low budget indy, but you can hardly tell. Better than most regular Hollywood movies.

    I saw the movie tonight at a special preview showing in Livonia, MI AMC 20. It was a terrific movie which deserves to be seen.
