I thought this was a really great movie. It's different, but great. Johnny Knoxville did a good job with this. It was both funny and serious. I don't think that there's anything wrong with Johnny Knoxville doing a semi-serious movie. I'm sure a lot of people won't agree, though. I think you have to have a certain mind set to enjoy this movie as much as I did. Also, I started off kind of biased because I'm a huge fan of Johnny Knoxville. I also think that the character of his daughter was a perfect choice. She was absolutely amazing. I can somewhat understand why people would hate this movie, though. They can't see Knoxville doing a serious movie, or they just think it's an awful movie because the plot doesn't appeal to them. Just try it. It really is a great movie.
