I went to a screening in NYC-the audience was laughing out loud and clapped at the end- this is great movie fun and uplifting- Paul GIamatti is perfectly cast as is Amy Ryan and CLare Foley who plays Pauls daughter is perfect- She is the redhead from the ALLY Bank commercial- whole cast is great,good music,great acting overall great experience- reminds me of Little Miss Sunshine- its a sleeper-sneaky good!

Just got back from a screening. Have to admit, didn't see any previews or heard of this movie before getting tickets for the screening and didn't know what to expect. Expect to laugh throughout the movie and choke up a little bit in the end. If your looking for a comedy drama with more laughs than you would expect to go along with some valuable life lessons, see this movie. Addressing everything from single parenting to respecting your elders, this movie roles out perfectly where you can't help but love the characters, particularly Paul Giamatti's. The kid actors in the movie did a great job and it's too bad this movie won't get as much recognition as your mainstream films. Hopefully come award season next year they don't forget this hidden gem. Well worth the 10 plus dollars you spend to see this.

Don't read any further, just GO SEE IT!!
Wow, I figured this was a sleeper movie because I had seen no ads for it. But the theatre was packed! I figured they all must have come to see Paul Giamatti as my husband and I did. But the script was so well written, and the level of acting was so high that we felt as if we had tumbled into a gold mine. The movie was funny, touching, kind-hearted and believable. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan, Alex Shaffer and Bobby Cannavale delivered with perfection. And it seemed that only Jeffrey Tambor and Burt Young could have fit into their roles so perfectly. Just a terrific little movie. LOVED IT!!!!!!
Great for teens, adults and seniors!

Excellent movie, I was tired and still enjoyed it very much. Would recommend it to anyone that's in the mood for a drama with comedic elements. Great cast all around.
