Funny, charming, touching and with good music
Funny, charming and with good music. The story of two different brothers working in a restaurant. This is one of those movies that's great to catch on TV during a weekend and not knowing what to expect.
It opens very comedic and lighthearted and slowly drifts and becomes more serious and dramatic as the run-time vanishes. I found it to be very touching to be honest. The older brother helping the younger and the younger having his psychological disorder. The acting is very good in this, especially in the second half, but over all it was good.
The romance may put some people off thinking it's clichéd. It may seem, but it goes in different directions and it's all handled very realistically. Either way it's nice to see the troubled main character find happiness after being under treatment for so long. The scenes in the restaurant were fun and I liked the dialogue and the back and forth banter between characters. You could say it's like "Chef" but with a recovering schizophrenic being the one working with the Chef instead of John Leguizamo.
It's an easy watch I'd say. If you wanna see a comedy with some heart and maybe some dramatic moments, then you can lean back and give this a watch. I thought the ending lifted the movie up even more and made the whole thing even better. Well, those are some thoughts or maybe some voices? OK, maybe I shouldn't end on a joke. Either way, check it out if you can.
