Storyline

Perfect gentleman and psychiatric therapist Peter Newmans is assumed gay by his doting patients, female neighbors and profiteering male playmates who envy his slick way with women. Then he's diagnosed with and operated for a rare, non-aggressive brain tumor, which suppressed his pituitary gland, the hormonal trigger of puberty. To the delight of his father, who always waited for normal 'teen rebellion' and knavish womanizing, Peter now rushes trough phases of 'growing up' sexually, with the benefits of adult body and income but without normal experience, confusing him, his crushes and his male friends.

6.5/10
20 November 2018 | by hgopaul-13273See all my reviews

I don't really get why this movie got so much hate. I almost didn't watch it because of all the negative reviews. I'm not a huge fan of overly stupid humor, but I found this to be quite funny. I compare it to Role Models for the level of humor. I saw at least one other reviewer state that the supporting cast was excellent, and it truly was. It was worth the watch alone for the lead's two best friends. An easy watch, not long or tedious, funny dialogue and banter, some good cameos and supporting cast. IMDB doesn't let me do half star ratings but a solid 6.5/10 for me.
