User Review

Great little movie

Rating: 9/10


Saw this tonight at the Seattle International Film Festival. I was not
expecting such a good movie. The writing and performances had the full
house laughing throughout. This is definitely a "dramedy" though. A lot
of touching moments between Jenna Fischer's character and Daniel
Yelsky, as well as Jenna and Rob Benedict. I expect this film to do
quite well once it picks up a distributor. If I had to compare it to
other films, James L. Brooks better films came to mind, as well as PT
Anderson — mostly because of the superb casting and writing. I
wouldn't change a thing about this movie. I almost forgot to mention
the new songs by Jakob Dylan that fit the movie so well. I'm still
going to see another 15 or so movies at SIFF, but I fear I have already
seen the best film that will screen at the festival.
