I know a lot of people hate this movie, but give it a chance. You’re not going to laugh hysterically and some of the movie is downright creepy, but it has some depth.
I loved Thomas Haden Church’s portrayal of the black sheep adopted brother.
I wish someone else other than Sarah Jessica Parker had been cast as the love interest though. She doesn’t work for me in this.
It’s a quiet, laid-back kind of film where the characters are more important than the plot. But the plot does eventually get around to its point: just because you score well on tests doesn’t mean you’re going to have an easier time figuring things out than anyone else.
Favorite line: “You have the IQ of a dumbass ant.”
