Quotes

Vic Damico: [discussing his ex-wife's new boyfriend] Well, tell Gerald, that if he touches my son again, I'll kill him.
Grace Damico: Really. It was nothing more than a tap. And Jed was being very rude.
Vic Damico: I don't care if Jed was taking a piss on his head. He touches him again, he dies. Tell him.

A Poignant, Touching, Believable Look at Dads After Divorce
1 December 2010 | by sixleggedfreakSee all my reviews

This film really explores the roles that children and fathers are placed in after divorce. It is far more than a comedy as it explores some of the situations and feelings that are present in the divorced family that includes kids.

This is a truly likable, wonderfully enjoyable, fun movie with enough comedy to make it laughable, but enough perspective to make a someone examine the roles of a family before and after divorce.

This movie is a true keeper for our family. We watch it about 3 times a year.

Highly recommended in my opinion.
