slow to start but very funny
26 December 2003 | by rendrag-1See all my reviews

A must watch movie for anyone who doubt's that they are normal.

Stanley is the eccentric young son of a rich tycoon, and fearing yet another visit to the looney bin does a runner and decides to learn what being normal is.

After a computer search of the families sales records he locates a "normal" family with a room to rent, gets a normal job etc.

You'll have to see the movie to find out how normal everyone Stanley meets will be.
