This film is not as wild as THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY, but it is amusing, touching, annoying, vulgar, funny, and goodnatured -- pretty good for one movie.
It is an odd stew of the 3 Stooges, Huck Finn, SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, and THE DEAD POET'S SOCIETY. Hatosy is endearing as a softhearted lunkhead -- he shows great tallent for both serious and comic work here. Baldwin is in rare form as an Al Bundy of the 70s who is truly a working-class Socrates.
The title is a play on words that indicates the various ways you can view life -- beyond help or help from beyond. It's a charmer in its own knuckleheaded way.
