I'm the kind of guy who cries during the feed the birds scene in Mary Poppins. I don't think it's mushy, I think it's simple and profound. Fancypants does this for me. The truths are deep and they're told in a simple way. there is nothing new in the film that you haven't seen before but it is told with honesty. My inner child liked it and my 50 yr old wrestling fan brain liked it. Plus there's Piper! I'm also a big fan of Independent film. I love the quirky humor of Wes Anderson. If you're looking for it, you can see the influence in the jokes, I did. The lead, Patrick Gleason, is believable and sympathetic. I like Tommy too. He must have some back ground in the theater. I've seen the wrestler and now I've seen Fancypants. I like the ending better in the latter. Nuff said.
