This film tells the story of a doctor who educates on diverting people's sexual energy into some other aspects of life, and create success as a result. It turns out that he never underwent puberty, and hence has no sexual desire. When his condition is treated, he goes through puberty with hilarious results.

"The Late Bloomer" is really quite funny! The idea of someone supposedly grown up going through puberty is funny, and the story is funny too. The two sidekick friends provide good support to the story and to Peter, the main character. He learns how to deal with his mood swings, his sexual urges and basically learns to have a new place in the world. It is actually what all adolescents go through, but it is funny to see it happen in an adult. Because of the universality of the adolescent experience, people can relate to the story. I liked watching it.
