      Great and Funny Movie!!!


      This was such a good movie from beginning to end. I thought Steve Carell and Juliette Binhoche were both so funny and had a great chemistry together on screen. Everyone in the cast did a amazing job and they all came together to create a great chemistry together which made the movie so much better. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone!

      My first opinion watching was thinking it would be funny. Wrong! There are a few laughs, but not enough it say it is a comedy. It is a good movie and would have been better if I would have been viewing it has a drama instead of comedy. Do not expect to see a comedy, just get ready for a good drama.

      I was not expecting this to be so well done. Outside of the obnoxious and usual close minded teen performance this was a fantastic film. Normally, I tend to stay away from mainstream films but I had to lay my cards down on this one, nice job.

      One of my favorites

      Extremely underrated movie. Don't expect laugh out loud, non-stop comedy. It definitely has its funny moments, but it is more of a drama that has sweet, sensitive aspects that is worth the watch and worth adding to your collection.

      I bought this movie based on the previews. It's "nice". It has a nice story with a nice family but feels really bland. Nice to see Steve doing something different, and he's good, but as rated, it's average.

      FANTASTIC Character Comedy


      This movie is incredibly hilarious, witty and entertaining. Steve Carell's best performance so far! It is not action packed, but keeps you tuned in throughout the whole movie. It's a great character movie!

      Funny with interesting plot


      The movie has an early comedic twist and entertains you throughout the movie. The tension of the plot is relieved with nice comedic moments. Definitely a worth while movie having in your collection.
