We went because the fans said to go and the critics said so-so. Usually that means at least a B movie with the fan being right. They were soo right. We loved it from the openng scene through the final scene. All three of us gave it a solid 10. There was so much to enjoy about the movie we loving every aspect. The laughs were totally unexpected and came throughout.
Every character did a great job to tell a story that may have been told before but not with such humor and a different kind of love. For subtitle haters not hard to read at all. Just see it and you should agree that it is one of the best movies this summer. I hope it is in a theater near you.

Part poignant, part feel good, part inspirational, and definitely funny...
This is well acted and deserves the reviews it is getting overseas. I hope it get into more theatres here in the city. This is a much better flick than most of the drivel that plays in most theatres.

This movie will make you cry, laugh and think! It is based on a true story between two men from very different background. The acting is superb and you definitely find yourself thrown in a story of friendship and compassion. As far as I am concerned this is one of the best movies of 2012.

If you find yourself yearning for a break from the unimaginative and predictable Hollywood formula (weak or non-existent screenplay propped up by gratuitous sex/violence/bad language all of which is smeared against the obligatory backdrop of computer generated images, stunts, and special effects), then treat yourself to this simple little gem.
Excellent story-telling/screenplay, dialog, and pacing all supported by a terrific role-inhabiting ensemble who play out the humor, pathos and, most importantly, the hope and spirit of this well-crafted movie. Special bonus: the eclectically exquisite soundtrack, and as the credits roll, the brief 8mm image of the two men the movie was based on.
