Nothing in this movie is a direct representation of anything that happened in my teenage years, but yet it was (almost uncomfortably) reflective of my teenage years.
Even though I love every Sam Rockwell movie I’ve ever seen, this is one of his most fun roles. As for Steve Carrell, it was nice to see him in a more subdued role for a change.
The fact that I gave a movie starring Maya Rudolph a 3 for Characters should be a testament to how much I really did enjoy this one.
They threw in some interesting water slide shots.
Visuals…800+ reviews later, still the most difficult section to write about.
I don’t count board games, so Candy Land gets a free pass.
I loved it. I really did. It’s just going to take a lot of effort for me to face this mirror of a movie again anytime soon.
