although superficially the movie appears as a bizarre comedy, it carries with itself a very emotional story of a man(Ben) who has been violated at every instance in his life.
the movie deals, in its unique hilarious way, with the issue of child abuse. every joke that is made has an undercurrent of helplessness and pain.
it is about the influences on the mind of a child and how they affect him in the long term.
the lead actor and the actress have done a wonderful job, so has the small boy. but the film truly belongs to the writer,director. the sequences are written beautifully, especially the one where the mother tells Ben about the harsh reality, and he thanks her for it.
