When Al is telling the group about his stepson he says, "Let's put on some Rush. Put your hand on a speaker, your hand on your heart, see if you feel something. I said, 'What are you feeling?' He said, 'Nothing.' I said, 'That's America.' He didn't get it." The joke is that they're a Canadian band. See more »

This film is hilariously entertaining if you recognize the intended allusions, particularly the nods to THE OMEN. Adam Scott and Owen Atlas are charming as step-father and son, especially in the water park scenes. Evangeline Lilly is surprisingly perfect as the ditsy mom; she delivers her lines with impeccable comic timing. I've never seen her outside of LOST and her performance here is spot-on. Yes, some bits are campy and silly, but the overall message is touching and relevant.
