Twelve year old Marcus Brewer lives with his chronically depressed single mother, Fiona Brewer. Both Fiona and Marcus beat to their own respective drummers. Marcus will do whatever he can to make his depressed mother happy, even if it causes himself grief. As such, he realizes that he is perceived as different than most kids, as even the self-professed weird kids don't want to hang out with him as he is the target of bullying. Part of the taunts against him are the fact that he sings and speaks to himself without even realizing that he is doing it. Meanwhile, thirty-eight year old Will Freeman is a slacker who has lived comfortably off the royalties of a song written by his deceased father, and as such has never had to work a day in his life.

UK airings on ITV2 cut out all the profanity and swearing to make a clean film language-wise. When the film appeared on Film4 in pre-watershed airings a large chunk of the profanity was retained save for the stronger words and certain phrases. See more »
It was a nice, funny and laughable film. I learned that the film is a book adaptation: I watched a movie. I liked it and gave it 8 points. The next morning, "This movie is American and very beautiful. this can not be." This is the movie industry in American space age.
The characters in the movie were nice. I do not like the end. Packed it up quickly. Other than that, the typists bothered. It was a classic. It was a funny and traceable film.
The duck scene was very beautiful.
