The previous review seems like it came from a crew member, all gushing with praise for this little movie, but surprisingly, I can't disagree much. I don't know that I'll watch it over and over, but it's certainly worth a view.
It's got great performances and dialogue. I didn't recognize any of the cast at first, until I realized the dad was from The Mummy and Deuce Bigalow from about 10 years ago. He was the long haired gigolo with the fish tank in Deuce Bigalow, and one of the best parts of that movie. One odd thing that seems out of place is that the mother has a very slight accent.
I don't know that I'd classify it strictly as a comedy, although it has liberal doses of comedy thrown in, often darkly funny.
Probably won't get much notice unfortunately, like the film Palo Alto from a couple of years ago. Another very well done movie that nobody has seen.
