The story of two Mumfords - one a small town, the other a man. Mumford, the town, is full of people with problems, from a teenage girl who is unhappy with her looks to a local billionaire, "the king of modems", who would trade everything away if he could. So when Micky Mumford, the man, turns out to be a psychologist with slightly unusual methods he soon finds a spot in people's heart as someone to whom they can tell their secrets. But Micky too has a secret, and that one's about to hunt him down.Written by
The skateboard that Skip uses in the movie is made by Stereo Skateboards, the company that actor Jason Lee co-founded in 1992 and still co-owns. The yellow circular graphic logo of Stereo Skateboards is visible on the deck of the board at two points in the film, outside of Lily's café when the coach of diners arrives, and at Skip's HQ when he meets with Dr Mumford. The word "Stereo" can also be briefly seen on the board when Skip sets it down on the table before showing the Doc his laboratory. See more »

"Mumford" is an unpretentious little romantic comedy with a softspoken, creative way of whetting curiosity and maintaining interest as it wends it's way through it's quirky but charming storyline. Sans the usual commercial "chick flick" schmaltz and boasting an R-rating, "Mumford" appears to refuse to compromise its freshness. A pleasant way to wile away 110 minutes.
