This was not a bad movie. A quirky flick but not a waste of time.

I have to admit I am a big fan of Jermaine Clement's deadpan delivery. I usually can't stand Elliot Gould but he was not particularly annoying in this. The supporting women cast (especially the older women) really held this movie together.

There are times I wish this flick would have gone deeper into the relationships between the main characters. But if it did, it might not have been as cute as it turned out.

If you like the actors and/or the premise, watch it.

Lots of one-liners. Angst-riddled son and embarrassing father forced to live together. Okay for light viewing, but not the tear inducer it intended to be.

Not an earth shattering production but sweet and fun. I enjoyed it...

Off-beat indie film features the under-used Elliott Gould as the father of a middle aged son who has to move back in with dad. It is an adult film for ADULTS. No sophomoric humour here - except Gould's jokes, some of which are hilarious - it isn't a movie for kids as it features adults in adult situations. Growing up ain't for sissies. We thought it was really funny and we'll watch it again. The acting was utterly spot-on. Perfect.

This comedy film is about the strain on a father son relationship where the father wants absolutely nothing to do with the son who is dying for his attention. What I liked about this movie is how it was able to find the humor in the sad things and instead of just being some sort of sad sob story, it actually delivered quite a few laughs and had a stellar cast. The actors did a surprisingly good job at bringing out the essence of their characters, and it was overall a well rounded film. I would rate this movie 4/5 stars. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Light hearted, typical type A Father with too much time on his hands and his unmotivated middle age son who is quite opposite of his Dad's who is self disciplined and some what successful.

Sweet movie. Probably more geared to the mature audience. Nice to see an uncomplicated non-violent movie.

Weird middle age angst movie that wasn't entertaining until the last 30 minutes.
