Unexpected treasure .

This is a story told by a narrator looking back on the unexpected events that lead up to his life.

Well received by critics, "TFH" is an enjoyable watch with a message for everyone mature enough for a mild R rating.

The movie's not great, but it is effective, and most importantly, very enjoyable.

But we rented it recently and enjoyed it very much.

I reluctantly have to admit that some characters -- especially the fifties housewives -- are more stereotypical than I would have liked, comporting with most east coast Italian coming of age movies we all have seen.

Really, this was just a slice of life picture with some characters that were interesting and compelling.

Not a fast action flick, but easy to follow on a slow Sunday afternoon, which is what it was when i saw it.

However, the protagonist is likable and the story is engaging so it's easy to overlook any shortcomings.
