I loved this. Steve Carrell plays an excellent jerk, Sam Rockwell is hilarious, and Liam James as Duncan is the perfect awkward teenager. It always helps to have Toni Collette, Allison Janney and Maya Rudolph in supporting roles. A great story about a kid trying to find a comfortable place in an uncomfortable existence.
Story was pretty lame. It reminded me of a wannabe Christopher Guest movie. But it made me laugh so hard. I would watch it again just for the comic performances. And for the music because it was pretty awesome.
