, its irreverent family dysfunction at its most entertaining levels.

Overall though, it was really enjoyable and entertaining.

So, I ignore whether this movie truly brings a valuable message, or if it at least works as a meager consolation for those going through that unfortunate situation; but in my personal experience, this film bored me to tears, and I felt it like an absolute waste of time.

The protagonist Carter's character arc is quite engaging and mostly well written.

begins as an exciting laugh-out-loud comedy.

At best it could be compared to a coming of age movie, except that he's already a man and there is no huge revelation scene where he realizes what he really needs.

At worst, it was a pointless dollar and change and two or so hours wasted.

Extremely pointless & disappointing.

The scenes followed one another freely and many didn't make sense, and the characters popping up from everywhere were too many to make the movie confusing and they didn't add anything really.

The characters are engaging and the acting is very great.
