Surprisingly Funny!

My friends and I really enjoyed this movie. It was a nice mix of comedy and sentiment. We felt that it was an authentic look at aging but also found a way to make us laugh again and again. It captured the beauty of rural life in the Midwest. You don't have to come from a farm to appreciate this film but if you did, you will love it!
