Storyline

After being there for a year, twenty-something Adam Stevenson decides to quit his dead end office job in the big city following "the incident", and head back to live with his parents in the small town in which he grew up until he figures out what to do, his life path trajectory interrupted in large part because of the incident. He receives mixed messages from his parents about his return, they who receive him with little fanfare yet who have kept his private telephone line active in his bedroom during his year away. News of his return to his old high school friends and acquaintances has also preceded him, many who heard that he went crazy. The townsperson with who he ends up bonding with the most is his old high school acquaintance, the adolescent minded Mac, with who he was reunited on a chance encounter.

Just plain magnificent!!!
14 September 2006 | by lorisigurdsonSee all my reviews

A feel good movie that revives the sole and ignites the inner-child. Makes you want to start crossing off things on your own to-do list.

I loved characters, they were all so well developed. Adam's indifferent father who doesn't care to put down his newspaper when his son arrives home for the first time after his buddy commits suicide. Adam's resentful mother who stores stuff in his room while he's still living there. And, of course my favourite Mac, who I identified with the most, the somewhat socially inept, child-like, free-spirit who despite his obvious flaws seems to have the found the key to his own happiness, and ironically the only person in the film who doesn't need to compile a 'things to do' list.

Well... it was 'just plain magnificent'(my new favourite term) and has a definitive spot on favourite movie shelf alongside Garden State, I 'love' Huckabees and New Waterford Girl which I think also beautifully capture the average individuals struggle to find happiness in their seemingly sterile environment.
