Given the subject and because it's a comedy you could expect a nervous, jumpy movie, oscillating between the serious subject and the occasional laugh. But it isn't. It's a very toned-down story, brilliantly simple with lots of funny, witty dialogue and great actors. All the characters are a bit off, but because Ellen Page plays the sassy teenager so flawlessly and Michael Cera just -is- the guy you wouldn't think of as the boyfriend of your daughter, everybody else just…
I think words fall short on this movie. It's great. Funny, emotional, deep. It's predictable in being so. It's everything you loved about the Muppets, if you ever loved them. They don't take themselves too seriously (as if they ever did) yet this is as true to it's roots as anything'll ever be. Is it too much to say that this is like an island of positive in midst of the constant cynicism in this world?
