Ran across this movie late at night on HBO, and what a SURPRISE it turned out to be. Kipp Marcus in the lead role plays a great insecure, bumbling teen assaulted by life's mysteries suddenly discovers that he's let whats most important slip away. Bernadette Peters is great as the off beat mom.
Got a little convuluted and corny near the end, but the good feeling overall more than compensates for that. After discovering that Kipp also wrote this and another Marcus directed -- this is a great first effort, and a relief. We could use more comedies like this one. I hope to see more from this family writer/director team.
