My only complaint is that I can't show the film to anyone younger than 17. There is a VERY brief scene of a girl in a wet, semi-transparent shirt, and, ridiculously enough, this earned the film an "R" rating. There is no reason why this brief scene could not have been left on the cutting room floor, since it adds exactly nothing to the plot, but I guess the producers thought it would make them more money or something. Big mistake, because they effectively eliminated as customers the exact section of the population who would most enjoy this otherwise excellent film.
I have never seen a movie get quite the reception that this one did at the Film festival: people were on their feet cheering at the end. Billy Campbell said that, in all his years in the business, he's never been prouder of a film than this one. That should tell you a lot.
This film is classified as a comedy but is more of an indie light drama. The comedy aspect is sometimes obscure as when our fat kid imagines killing himself by stepping in front of a bus...a bus that has an ad on its side for "Fat-Away." Or when we see him reading the book "Lord of the Flies" a tale in which the fat kid is bullied to death.
The film is well acted. It is heart warming while not being drippy. It may not make you laugh, but it will make you smile. A great indie film. How it got into my local Redbox is a mystery.
Parental Guide: 1 f-bomb near the end. No sex, but people undressing for sex. Rear male nudity. See-through wet blouse. Masturbation scene. All these scenes were brief.

Fantastic performances, a smart script and dead-on directing make this little flick well worth your time! What a nice change of pace from the usual stuff.Published on June 11, 2013 by Christopher Storck
