This film is a funny parody on motivational speakers and New Age beliefs. It is lighthearted --- breathe deep, let go, FOCUS! --- and yet it provides a valuable perspective by making fun of someone else's cherished beliefs. The head of a family makes his living by giving motivational/spiritual pep rally talks, and yet finds himself faced with challenges in taking care of a 'bad boy' relative. I loved the sexy daughter, and the family conferences and fitness practices. Check it out!
The film has scenes of shaken confidence and domestic challenges that are ultimately conquered through a kind of triumph of will. It is rather heart-warming. I believe that parody is valuable because we can all laugh at the foibles of others, and yet in our laughter at the expense of others, we may glimpse the fact that our own cherished beliefs may have some previously unsuspected shortcomings. And this could give us a better perspective and contribute to a greater willingness to embrace much needed live-and-let-live attitudes in our society!
