[to a mother who swore in the presence of Chai]
Why don't you take your potty mouth, go locate your pre-teen cock-sucking son and stuff him back up that old blown-out sweat sock of a vagina and scoot off back to whatever shit-kicking town you came from!

Great film. A different kind of "feel-good" movie.
Other reviewers here have slated the film due to the language which I agree was a little harsh considering the age of the actors but the film would just not have worked without it. The characters were developed brilliantly all the way through and production perfect.
Saying much more would be leaning towards spoilers which are as they suggest. I will say it is funny, heart-warming and generally enjoyable.
If I had one criticism it would only be that it was a tiny bit predictable but by the end of the movie I just didn't care.
Would recommend this movie to all except those unduly sensitive to language.
