Excellent story and acting, not for kiddies
5 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The folks who have trashed this excellent drama are those who saw the misleading studio hype about this film and were looking for more garbage like "American Pie". There is no schtick here, no easily recognizable stereotypes, no fart jokes for an America that has degenerated to the point where virtually everyone has the same tastes as their eight year old child. The characters are realistic, sensitive, flawed and vulnerable in a country that likes simple and macho and a story that does nothing to get in the way of their numerous bigotries.

Jeremy Davies is one of the most talented actors of his generation in a country that thinks Ben Stiller is an acting genius.
