I liked this film about a turning point in a 14-year old’s life that comes off without rainbows and fireworks. It manages to be feel-good without getting syrupy. It’s all sorts of predictable but diverged just enough from the formula to keep me watching. I’m not a fan of Steve Carell but he did a great, understated job playing a dickhead. I AM becoming a big-time fan of Sam Rockwell who pretty much steals the film (as he did in 7 Psychos).
