    A brilliant feal-good comedy, the has some great laughs. A Great cast, and an awesome story made the movie more enjoyable. Different then most comedies you see now a days, had more of a story, and left more of a feeling. That is why I believe this is a 5 star movie.

    a pretty good movie. abigail breslin did great. the rest of the cast did great as well. mostly entertaining, but it was kinda of slow in some parts. there were a few good laughs throughout the movie, but it wasnt a "laugh out loud"kinda movie, more of a dramadey.. Ok for kids 13+ Plenty of language and some brief sexual innuendos(mostly said by the grandfather, who also smokes pot) overall rating! 7.5/10
