Storyline

A comedy/drama about 35-year-old Morris Bliss, who is clamped in the jaws of New York City inertia: he wants to travel but has no money; he needs a job but has no prospects; he still shares an apartment with his widowed father; and perhaps worst of all the premature death of his mother still lingers and has left him emotionally walled up. When he finds himself wrapped up in an awkward relationship with the sexually precocious, 18-year-old daughter of a former classmate, Morris quickly discovers his static life unraveling and opening up in ways that are long overdue. Written by Anonymous

Meh... you aren't missing anything
3 July 2019 | by fitzpatrickjdSee all my reviews

It's not funny. Kinda quirky & really just "ok" Was kind of a let down really. But if you're looking for an arty, indie type movie then this might be for you. Even on those terms though, I'd still call it average at best
