If you don't get it...
28 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"They're all offended by everything!?" Is a line from the hero's wife that sums up, in my opinion, the nature of the story. She says this after one of many encounters with the living breathing examples that we all bounce off of daily, of what happens when people lose their connection to humanity and replaced it with a death-grip on their own delusions(The coaches wife is my favorite/most hated example).

Jeff Garlin is genius in illustrating the everyday 'idiotics' that we all either encounter or contribute to depending on whatever determines that. I'll be on the lookout from now on for more of his work.

Even the 'fatherly' scenes that would have been left out of 95% of the genres scripts added so much depth to interactions and understanding of the star. I didn't expect that and it made things even more real and moved in between the scenes that I was laughing.

Like Idiocracy, somehow this movie escaped the radar of the masses and it's a damn tragedy, if for no other reason but I'd like to think those of us that agree with the premise of it aren't in the minority...Oh well some are born tall, some short, some smart, ...

Oh and as a bonus the casting took this movie from poignant and funny as hell to a world-class comedy experience. When you cast a movie from top to bottom with stars that can make you cry with laughter, your bound to strike gold.

Great movie!
