Trouble with Dot & Harry, The | Slamdance Review - Slamdance 2015

27 January 2015 4:32 PM, PST | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Gary Walkow's The Trouble with Dot & Harry is one of those extremely rare family comedies that is funny and sweet, yet so incredibly intelligent. All of the moments feel incredibly authentic, as if they have been lived through by the screenwriter, lending the story the feel of a memoir. (Note: Walkow is Dot and Harry's real-life father.) Walkow brilliantly captures the awkward and uncomfortable moments as Richard flounders his way around child care. Richard constantly finds himself negotiating with the kids, as they are always pushing boundaries and testing limits. Dot and Harry try to learn as much as they can about this strange man, whether it be by Google searches or sneaking their mother's signed copy of The Trouble with Dick (Richard's first novel) along on the road trip. Richard learns an important lesson: by treating Dot and Harry like adults, he earns their respect and admiration. »
