This movie was a complete surprise. I found it randomly on a streaming site that starts with "N."

This is a story about two slackers/small time criminals who find themselves caring for a 12 year-old boy. The story shifts from comedy to fatherhood, and how families form as needed. There is still a lot of humor in the story, until it reaches a certain point where it's breaking your heart.

The film pays off. Highly recommended.

So many films today want to portray young men, and fathers in particular as losers trying to escape parenting. This is a story about people who fight for it.

A Bag of Hammers starring Jason Ritter and Jake Sandvig is one of those movies that starts off as a comedy and then halfway through, shifts to a serious, thoughtful film. A Bag of Hammers is the story of two slackers who suddenly become a father figure to a seriously neglected boy named Kelsey. Rebeca Hall and Amanda Seyfried also star. I really loved this movie, I felt like the ending was so moving and you could really feel the love for this troubled boy. I highly recommend it, enjoy!

The title of this movie is very clunky - "Bag of Hammers"?!?! - and is not what you might expect. Why it was given that name is not explained until about midway through the movie - which is fine, but it does make you wonder, and may keep people from watching it. (The explanation makes total sense, btw.)

Essentially, best friends Ben and Alan support themselves by stealing cars in an unnamed California city. They pose as complimentary valet parkers at funerals and then take one of the vehicles - literally, put their "complimentary valet" sign in the car and drive off with it - and sell it to their friend Marty. Alan's sister Melanie does not approve of this activity, but she doesn't seem to mind taking money from their nefarious deeds, nor driving one of the cars (which I assume was not actually stolen, but we don't know for sure). Mel works as a waitress at a diner, and is going to college (studying some unknown subject).

Their situation changes when the pair rent a bungalow next to their house (which I thought was also a scam!) to a single mom with a 12-year-old son, Kelsey. The mom, Lynette, is a bona fide mess and neglects her son, who ends up hanging out with the boys. ***SPOILER ALERT*** When Lynette kills herself, Ben and Alan take on the task of raising Kelsey - at least until Mel turns them in to Child Protective Services.***END SPOILER***

The movie has a lot of things going for it. A great cast (including Jason Ritter, John Ritter's son... the entire time I watched the movie I wondered why he looked so familiar!) who fully inhabit their roles, an interesting storyline, and the tackling of topics - such as child abuse and neglect - that are usually either ignored or so fully embraced that they become tiresome.

I love this quirky, smart, dramatic, touching indie film. The acting is superb by actors Jake Sandvig, Jason Ritter, and Rebecca Hall. It has a bit of everything you could want in a film, I just wish it was in theaters for a longer period of time :)

This film has such a good story and manages a perfect balance of comedy and drama. Everything from the writing to the actors' portrayals to the music was really well executed. It has both warm, dry, and dark humor and each character feels real and complex. Highly recommend it - you won't be sorry!!

This is a really good movie. I had never heard of it and noticed it on Amazon. Jason Ritter is amazing. Definitely worth watching.

This was a wonderful movie. I enjoyed the acting and the story line. It hit home on many aspects. The thing that bothered me the most about the story line is that had the two main characters showed compassion earlier, both the mother AND the son could have enjoyed a brighter future. It is a sad commentary on American life. Ironically, prior to the mother's choice, she was to blame for her family's situation. No one was willing to help her help herself. It is unfortunate that it was the only way for her to get the help that she needed for her son. It has left me emotionally disturbed and doing a bit of soul searching myself.
