This movie looks pretty by the numbers but it has a couple of very important things going for it. Sam Rockwell is one of those things as he’s very generally amazing. Steve Carell, Tony Colette, Alison Janney, and Rob Corddry are another as that’s a pretty stellar supporting cast. I haven’t seen Liam James in much but this could be a good start for him.
The best thing about this though is that it’s written by Jim Rash and Nat Faxon who previously won an Oscar for penning The Descendants
Yeah, it seems like a pretty standard coming of age movie but given the people involved I’ll likely see it.
