I don't know why I was surprised at how good this film is. The actors are all top-notch, the story is completely different, and the "heart-warming-ness" isn't too sickening sweet. I guess the fact that it's playing in theaters while I rented it online threw me: only stinkers get rented out as soon as they're released. I hadn't heard beans about this movie, so clearly the studio wasn't happy with it. Still, I liked it. It reminded me of "Best In Show", with its single-minded, nut-job characters, but it was also a lovely little story of finding love & family. It could have been a good "family" movie if they'd cut the few sex-related scenes which really added nothing to the film & could have been simply alluded to. But sex sells, right? Nevertheless, rent the movie, it's fun.
