not an original story. not artistic revelations. only a film about small, ordinaries things. about friendship and grow up, relations, happiness. superficial in the first part, touching in the second. short, a film about pure life. not surprising. but nice. and real interesting, first for the performance of Chris Klein who reflects in wise manner the symptoms of Peter Pan Syndrome.and this is the basic virtue of a film about almost nothing , who could be defined as only another from its genre. film about the purpose of life, it has the strange art to redefine old known things . and the result becomes, after the confusion , a decent work.
