Jesus Christ, Andrew, why can't you let it go, okay? No wonder your mother drinks.
You know the last thing Kyle said to me? Said you're a stupid fucking idiot. Have a good time on your TV show; Kyle's still dead.

Suddenly today was the day I wanted to watch a movie. Not a typical everyday thriller/action flick with all the explosives and hot babes. I just wanted to watch a movie that made me chuckle and think at the same time.
So I searched through Google for indie movies. I prefer watching indie movies. They have this kind of weird, but cool feel to it while you are watching it. So I found a list of 25 indie movies for 2009, and I found a nifty trailer for this movie. I must say it had me laughing out loud like a fool, but it was great.
That inspired me to watch this dark humor film. Robin Willians as the meek, gentle Lance, and Daryl Sabara as the douchebag son Kyle. From what I seen this was one of Robin Williams tamed roles. None other less he played the character very well. Wow; I was surprise Daryl Sabara was in this movie. The last movie I saw him was in Spy kids; his role in this movie was jaw dropping. Considering how his character was portrayed.
In overall this movie was funny as hell, but also in some parts made you widen your eyes and gasp. I would recommend this movie very much.
