Not top comedy or even top drama ,, but i really liked it
15 August 2018 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

The movie is purposeful has a clear message and that is what it's all about,

The plot is strong and surprisingly the script is well written, and the events are connected and goes fast and smooth without any dull moments.

"Accept yourself but never stop improving".

The casting was really good ,, loved Blake Cooper even though he isn't a fat anymore, he had that honest, pure and innocent sense of humor ... we haven't seen much of Judy Greer or Luke Wilson, i love the folks but their appearance was so minimum ,, Donald Sutherland was also good ,, but after all lets be honest it was all about that "Bobby Marks" kid.

Anyway, heartwarming family movie , definitely recommended.
