Trivia

Interestingly the brand of beer being served in the Mexican strip club is 'Chupacabra' named for a mythical creature believed to inhabit the deserts of Mexico and the U.S. southwest. The literal translation of Chupacabra is 'goat sucker'. Duchovny investigated it as Agent Mulder in The X Files. See more »

On the check written to Gates Academy, Tucson is misspelled "Tuscon". See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Ellis Whitman: Goat Man took me on my first trek when I was eleven. Not long after that he taught me how to do bong hits. It doesn't matter where we go on these treks, we just wander. Goat Man says it's the journey that counts, which I know is cliche. In a few days I leave for the prep school my father went to. Goat Man's calling this my farewell trek. He says I should suck up as much of the Sonoran sun as I can, but he's the one doing most of the soaking.
Goat Man: Whew! You won't have all this at Gates ...

Average teenage drama! 4/10
15 February 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Review: This is your everyday tale of a teenager growing up with weird surroundings. We have seen this type of storyline many times before, but the unique thing about this storyline is the fact the leading character is being brought up by a goat man. There is enough in the plot to make the story interesting, but I did fall asleep a few times during the movie because the leading character seemed pretty dull with not much personality. All of the surrounding characters in the movie, especially Duchovny, have strange life's with much going on, which the young teenager has to deal with, along with college life and a alcoholic room mate. Personally, I was hoping for a something a bit different than the norm, but there isn't enough to make this movie stand out from different movies in this genre. Watchable!

Round-Up: If this movie had a leading character with better screen charisma, then it wouldn't have been to bad. Even if they would have taken out the leading character, it had enough substance to be a different type of movie. Anyway, for me, it is Duchovny that makes this film, but the disappointing thing is that he is not in it that much. We are just watching a boy become a man who had to make some difficult choices, like every teenager nowadays.

Budget: $5million Worldwide Gross: N/A

I recommend this movie to people who are into there dramas about a teenager growing up with strange surroundings. 4/10
