Very cute
18 September 2016 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

And it is a very nice simple movie!

A young girl just at graduation from high school finds herself having to care for a middle-aged man with severe Tourette's Syndrome and dealing with her mothers recent death. Ideally at this time in a teens life the thoughts of leaving home and creating your own path should be her main concern but life has other plans for her.

After numerous failed attempts to hire a suitable caregiver for her uncle with Tourette's syndrome Laura and her two friends decide to take the uncle with them on their planed post graduation road trip. This is the setup for the movie.

Well Garrett M. Brown as the Tourette's stricken uncle is totally unconvincing. And the funny scenes such as the baseball bat incident come across as more creepy than the intended funny it is suppose to be. They hit the road and the comedy never shows up for me. Yes there are smiles and moments of levity but the situations never become really funny. Of course the girls learn a life lesson from Frank and there is the expected happy ending. Almost to hours of story and it's just all mostly forgettable.
