The comedy is simple and fresh and you won't regret watching it ... Hope you enjoy it.
21 July 2015 | by (Boston, MA, United States) – See all my reviews

The movie story is really sweet,, the idea is new and the plot is perfectly clear and the events grows smoothly .. the comedy is really nice, simple and easily understandable and followable , Jeremy Sisto is a good well known actor and as his second try as a script writer it really shows that he got some talent ,, as the screenplay got some "about a boy" style in it's start or maybe i'm still affected and stunned by it's cancellation but it is a nice story for a thirty something years old guy to be a mentor like for a kid from school .. then the real story about the brothers reveals itself, to finally a reasonably strong ending ,, the only thing is the movie felt really fast to me, but i think it is a plus point counts to the editing and directing because the story might'v gotten boring if they added more branches to the story, so i think after all things went smoothly in that matter.

As for the cast, Jeremy Sisto is really funny,, David Walton is awesome , loved him from about a boy , here maybe the script was a bit unfair for him like doesn't mean he wasn't funny especially the scenes with the kid but he could'v been a lot funnier. Also it was a Nice touch bringing actors like J.K. Simmons, Amy Smart and Adam DeVine but also they could'v gotten a couple of funny lines to make their characters pops a little . and sure the little kid ,. Joshua Rush he's got some skills ;)

Overall,, the movie already won Newport Beach Film Festival award for Outstanding Achievement in Filmmaking ,, it is not an Oscar .. but it is a huge recognition for a movie still officially to be released on the 4th of September this year,, so bravo ... the comedy is fresh and you won't for a second regret watching it. hope you guys enjoy it ;)
