One very funny movie
mllekate | USA | 11/10/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Justin Long (Jeepers Creepers, Dodgeball) delivers a particularly funny performance as an 18 year old socially dysfunctional genius who locks himself in the bathroom for two months to work out mathematical formulas on the shower walls. The script is very clever and the cast excellent, particularly Wendie Malick (Just Shoot Me) as his social-climbing (and equally dysfuncitional) mother, but Justin Long steals the show. Also starring Ed Begley Jr., Tippi Hedren, and Shirley Jones."

"This is really funny and good for family viewing. Only one scene deserves parental guidance for young viewers. The cast is ideal I think. Danica McKellar does not do much but is very effective doing her part. The plot is simple but very good."
A Parody of the uncertainty that comes with high school grad
Artist & Author | Near Mt. Baker, WA | 01/09/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Unlike most American comedies, this movie relies more on dry humor than slapstick for its humor. It really is a parody of many high school teens about to graduate from high school; about to leave the comfort of the 'womb' of the school for the real world. In this movie, Justin seeks the security of a bathroom to keep from having to cope with the outside world. I would also say that it has elements of the reputed social ineptness of extremely bright people. Most everyone knows some so-called bright person who tries to escape from social life by using the 'importance' of their intellectual persuits.
In a way, this movie is better for adults than for teens because from the vantage point of several years one can see just how unprepared they were as fresh-faced high school graduates, so they can view this movie from that perspective. It is far from a great movie, but it is adequate for adult's vicarious re-enjoyment (if you would call it that!) of those uncertain days."
