I really enjoyed this movie. I'm surprised it wasn't released on DVD sooner.

The characters were all so deeply drawn out, quirky and so very flawed-- almost to where it was tragic. I enjoy movies with dysfunctional and broken families because I know what that's like and frankly, it's nice to see someone worse off than me.

The cast was amazing!! Tom Arnold, Jimmy Fallon, Sharon Stone and Lucy Liu make for a decent ensemble.

And let me reiterate that Fallon is a highly underrated actor and that can play more than just a giggling goofball-- he really can portray a brooding and incredibly broken man. Jimmy Fallon really displayed some of the best acting of his career.

I liked this movie, and give it 4-stars. My husband said he would only give it 3-stars, but he watched the whole movie with me, which means he thought it was interesting. Despite the cast, this isn't a comedy, but more of a thoughtful drama. The acting was great, and I liked the ending.

I have watched this movie 3 times and upgraded it to blu ray.It's a great but sad and depressing story.Could not help but feel sorry for Christopher Rocket( Jimmy Fallon) this guy can act.Sharon Stone gave fabulous performance as a hippie mother. I like her philosophy on life, very original.Lucy Liu was great and sexy.Christopher's father (Tom Arnold) gave his performance as a selfish father at his best.
It deserves 5 stars.

This film wasn't released in theatres, but it's loaded with interesting scenes and offbeat performances. It's definitely worth seeing. After all, this is a film where Sharon Stone has the comic lead and Jimmy Fallon has the serious role! There are lots of memorable scenes with a very funny supporting cast, too.
