For me, this movie had it all. Love it when the laughs are real and not forced. Dug the way the friends were cool to each other but also teased and joked around with each other. Seemed natural. Totally could relate with the kid and his family and pressure of not knowing what to do after high school. The guy who played the stoner was a riot! Jim Norton as the counselor was a bit much, but I gotta say, I laughed every time he was on screen. And whoa... the lead actress was smoking! Can't wait to see more of her! Recommended to a few buddies and they've all liked it. Give it a shot, you won't be disappointed.
