brave as hell, amazing performances, funny and moving
3 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

i don't know where this guy got the balls to do something like this. to tackle suburbia, fear, profiling, gays, children - in a comedy. i love how they never tell you what to think or how to feel. everybody's screwed up, just like in real life. there's not one bad performance in it. kathy najimy is awesome - totally different than the way you think of her. peter paige is great - sad and funny and weird. and gabrielle union and anthony clark are great, too. oh, and melanie lynskey is freakin' hilarious. it's worth taking a chance on - seriously. it won't be everybody's thing, but if you're tired of movies where everybody's perfect and you already know how it's going to end, check this out. i loved it.
