This movie attempts to be so realistic that it is completely UNrealistic. The characters were so over-the-top and one dimensional that it became simply agonizing to wait for the next unappealing scene. There were so many 4-letter words (many coming from the 2 teenage boys) that if they were bleeped out, most of the dialogue would be gone. About half way through, we just gave up watching it because there was nothing to enjoy in the experience. Don't bother.

I hated this movie, I hate movies like this. Real movie critics and all the indy movie awards praised. It is all to sick, and dark and you just hate all the characters. I wanted to smack them all. I have better things to do with my time then see this sad messed up stuff.

This was an interesting, if slightly depressing movie. Two mildly successful academics are getting divorced over ego issues. The movie focuses on how the two kids, boys, deal with this. The older of the sons turning into an insufferable clone of his father, and the younger one turning to beer and his mother's underwear.

Thought provoking sour drama....
Emanuel Perdis | NSW Australia | 10/28/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Very thought provoking realistic script with confronting aspects about divorce, marriage and sibling relationships. As art, amazing....As a viewing experience...I did not enjoy it at all."
