Storyline

In Wellington, Lily is a wallflower, inexplicably attracted to Jerrod, a loser. He's nursing a decade-long grudge against someone who teased him in high school; she's just out of a job. She goes home with him to a seacoast town where he intends to have it out with his nemesis; she meets his father, his daughter from a one-night stand, and other family members - and there's the memory of his talented (and dead) brother. Jerrod treats Lily badly, invents a relationship with a women he had a crush on years before, and gears up for his fight. Will she finally have enough and go home? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Very Napoleon Dynamite Feel
29 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at Sundance 2007. I really enjoyed watching this show, I caught about 5 movies in 4 days and this was the best out of all of them.

This movie was entertaining, I was never bored. It reminded me of Napoleon Dynamite however different enough to not be a rip off. All the characters were great! They added exactly what was needed in this movie to make it fun to watch.

Favorite Quote "Some people don't have sleeping bags"

Anyway this is really worth a watch and look forward to having a copy at home to watch over and over.
