This may be one of my favorite movies of 2013. I watched it thinking my husband might not like it and then watched it again with him when he came home. All the charm of a classic 1980's film but now. The acting is great, the story is great and Sam Rockwell is amazing in it. A+ Film.

September 2013. Frankly there are not a lot of movies I am willing to pay to see in a theatre and thus with my choices quite limited I was very surprised to see this sleeper movie with my wife. The interaction of Duncan and Sam Rockwell's character are the main relationship in the movie. Very fresh story line with good delivery of one liners from Sam Rockwell. I would highly recommend seeing

The movie was awesome. It was fun. I was bewildered, in mild suspense, laughed, then cried a tear of joy. And the boy reminded me so much of me at that age. He got a few breaks I didnt get. And again I must say...the lady I bought my tickets from is so beautiful. She has changed her hair color.
