Single mom Laura (Farmiga), along with her awkward 14 year-old son Henry (MacDougall) is forced to drive Jack (Plummer), her estranged, care-free pot dealing father across country after he's kicked out of yet another nursing home. The road trip veers off course when Jack decides to make a couple 'stops' and Henry asks to see his ne'er-do-well dad Leonard (Cannavale), completely upending Laura's attempt to hold her family together and ultimately forcing her to finally see her father for the man he really is.

This movie is way underrated and a lot of people just don't get it. For me, this is one of the best movies I have seen. This is what I call a "dark comedy" that follows a famous, self-centered playwright and his romantic interest (played by Aaliyah). The film follows her through her life and follows her through the ups and downs of her career. The only thing that really stands out is Aaliyah, she is simply mesmerizing and entertaining. She is the driving force of this movie. My only problem with the movie is the ending. I was just waiting for it to get better but then it just ended. But aside from that, this is a great movie. If you like dark comedies, you should definitely give this one a try.

I never write reviews, but when I first saw this film, I was very excited. I had seen the trailer, and I knew it was going to be a lot of fun. I didn't see the film in the theater, but I didn't mind. I was a little worried that the trailer would spoil the movie, but I really liked it. I felt like the film was very fun and enjoyable. The story was great, and I liked how it was told. The cast was great, and they did a great job of not making the movie seem too impersonal. I felt like they were all very real and not fake. I think the movie was a great way to watch the show without having to see the entire show. I definitely recommend this film to everyone who hasn't seen the show, because the film is great, too.

Just finished watching this movie on TV. I'm amazed by the reviews, and have even seen people giving this movie 1-2 stars, but I must say that it's one of the most compelling movies I've seen in a long time. The movie is very non-traditional, but that is what makes it so very unique. I really like the fact that the characters don't seem like ordinary people at all. They really seem like they are living their lives on purpose, but at the same time not taking the job too seriously. There is one particular scene where Chris Penn says that he wants to be a limo driver, but at the same time he doesn't want to take the job too seriously, and I think it was very inspiring. I hope the movie gets a lot of positive feedback. I think it was a very good move to make the movie as it was, without using heavy-handed Hollywood sentiment. If you like movies that you can just sit back and enjoy, I think you will love this movie.

If you liked the British comedy "You're So Vain", you will like "Boundaries". I admit, I saw "You're So Vain" at the cinema but I liked "Boundaries" even more. It's a fun movie to watch and has good performances all around. Some people think that it's politically incorrect to use blackface, but I think it's perfectly appropriate. The main character is a man named Ricky (Cameron Bright). His friend Johnny (Cyrus Jones) is a black man who has made some problems with his sister. Ricky comes to Johnny's house and says, "Hey Johnny, I'm a black man." Johnny replies, "Hey, don't be so racist. I don't know if you're black or white, but you look like one." Ricky is smitten with Johnny and tells him that he loves him. So Johnny buys Ricky's big house and takes him to the restaurant. Ricky is all excited about it but when he gets back home, he realizes that his sister has decided that she hates him because of the racism he's made and she's going to tell everyone that he's a racist. The rest of the movie is a bunch of different stories that Ricky has to tell Johnny. There are a lot of great jokes in this movie and I hope that you will see it. I hope that you will see it and that you'll like it. I will say that it's a must see for everyone.

What the hell?.no! It was just a joke! I just saw the movie for the first time. Just my opinion! I think it is great! I think everybody in the world, in any race, any religion, ethnic, culture, whatever, should see it. I also think it is great to make a movie about something different. I like it. I'm not gonna say how to you find it because there are so many people who already have. I'm just gonna tell you that you should see it. I think everybody should see it!

For all you auteurs out there, well, welcome back to the group. I'll admit I had reservations about this film from the start. I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was, I was expecting it to be pretty good, but I wasn't expecting it to be so excellent. This movie is perfect. It isn't as you'd expect, the characters are portrayed in a way that is truly touching and realistic, but at the same time, it is nothing short of brilliant. The story is great, and the movie as a whole is really good. I don't think I've seen a movie this emotionally deep and meaningful in a long time. The main characters, who we are introduced to at the beginning of the movie, have all really developed, and I have to say that this is probably one of my favourite movie characters. It was hard for me not to fall in love with the film, I really cared about the characters. I was even going to watch it again just to see how the characters developed, but I felt I needed to watch it for myself. I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this film. I don't think I could ever watch this movie again. I don't think I could ever watch it for someone who didn't care for the main characters in any way, shape, or form. I really can't say enough about how this movie changed my life, and I really can't recommend it enough. A brilliant movie!

Not a great movie. It seems that some of the reviews that talk about it being a "chick flick" or a "wanna-be movie" are from people who have never even heard of it. So many people think that if you are a chick you must hate it. I thought it was a great movie and I recommend it. Don't listen to the people who tell you that it's a chick flick. Everyone has a different taste. I think you will like it.

The premise of this movie sounds simple, but is executed so well. I will leave it up to you to decide if it is a serious movie, or a comedic movie. As a former Navy Seal, I would say it is about the main characters relationships and the frustration they have dealing with the stress of a military job. I found the main characters fascinating and the acting was extremely believable. As a former Navy SEAL, the acting was realistic. The movie deals with a very serious topic and the acting was very well done, especially for this genre. I would suggest this movie to anyone who enjoys political satire and comedy. I will be looking for this movie on DVD soon. There are some scenes that are very disturbing, but it does not detract from the movie.

I saw this film at the The New York Film Festival, and I must say I am in love. I was not prepared for how seriously I was going to take this movie, and was very pleasantly surprised. The audience was laughing throughout, and many of the actors in the film were very funny, especially Monica Potter as Mary Sue. The film takes a lot of flack for its "low budget" trappings, but I thought it was excellent. I would recommend this film to any film-lovers, and recommend it to people who are looking for a lighthearted comedy. The film shows a rather uncomfortable, but ultimately funny side of homosexuality in the film, and has many funny moments that will make you think about it. I am still in disbelief that this film is so controversial, and this film shows a side of homosexuality that is not often shown in the film industry. I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to see a film that is not dominated by gay jokes, and is actually funny. My score: 9.5/10

This film is the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. It is soooooo much better then I thought it would be. The acting is great, the direction is perfect. The writing is really good. The story is sooo funny, it will have you in tears more then once. I have recommended it to many people. The DVD is also hilarious. It has both in the same box. I am truly shocked by how good this film is. Do yourself a favor and watch this movie!

This film is a must see for every age group. If you are a child, then the film will warm your heart. If you are an adult, the film will draw you in and you will be asking yourself: What would I do in such a situation. This film will make you think and is a must see. In conclusion, I love this film, I tell my kids that it is a must see, and I have watched it twice. I am a woman in my fifties, and this film touches the heart of all women. I love that it is a great film for girls, boys, and men, and also a must see for anyone who thinks they have no heart.

I don't understand why so many people hate this movie. It's not that it's a low budget movie that cost a fortune, it's the director's love for cinema, his love for classic movie-making and his sense of cinema, his love for movies. This film is not a bad film, but it's definitely a masterpiece. The acting is all good, but especially Tom Hanks' performance is the keystone. He's so convincing and convincing, that you never think it's his character. It's his. I'm not an American, but in my heart I feel that the American people are completely behind Tom Hanks in this movie. You don't know it because you don't pay attention to the plot. You just see Tom Hanks and his girl, and that's it. I don't understand why people give this movie such a bad rating, it's the perfect film to enjoy with your family or with your friends. The story is the most important thing, and Tom Hanks is the director who makes this perfect. If you have the chance to see this movie, do it. It's very rare, and it's the only movie that I would recommend to everyone.

I saw this film at the Royal Edinburgh Film Festival. The film was a great combination of dark humour and comedy. I liked the acting and the character development, and especially the relationship between the mother and the daughter. I like the relationship between the mother and the father. I would definitely recommend this film. It's probably one of the funniest movies I have seen this year.

I'm quite sure that it was a joke to say that this is a movie. How can you not laugh at the original "Carry On" spoof from the early 80's. The accent is fantastic. Benning is fantastic as well. Some people might say this movie is trying too hard to be a serious movie. but i think it's the other way around. the comedy is actually really funny. I really like this movie. 9 out of 10. Its definitely a great movie.

Mr. Bean is a must see for all the teens out there. This movie is funny, different and can teach you a thing or two about life. I've been listening to this song and this movie for about a year now and I can't get enough of it. The soundtrack is awesome too. I think every teen should see this movie. I've watched it several times and I still laugh so hard. This movie is better than Grease, It's better than Think Like A Man. The movie is about Mr. Bean who is a silly little perky boy. He lives with his grandparents, a circus, and a girl. He isn't a fun-loving teenager. He has a few secrets and he's not willing to tell them to anyone. One day, a kid comes in and takes the place of Mr. Bean and his family. He becomes Mr. Bean. The movie is just great. It's an underrated movie. The movie isn't funny, but it's still good. It's a movie to be watched by all ages.

I'm always interested in watching a movie that starts off with a strong story but in the end (or in this case, in the beginning of the movie), the story was a bit weak and the ending was a bit weak. In this case, the story is a weak one, but in the end it was a good movie. The story was good and the acting was good. There is nothing special in the acting except for the comedian. I hope that this movie gets a better rating because I've seen it several times now. It's a good movie that will keep you entertained and interested. I gave it a 9 out of 10.

Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep are indeed a wonderful pair, and a fine working team for a movie that is probably one of the best films of the 90s. This film is a movie about two people who have great regard for each other. This movie is about the flaws of the human mind. This movie is about two people who are in love and are trying to find love. The movie is also about dealing with the world. The movie is about relationships, love, and understanding the world around us. The movie is about human relationships, the human mind, and the idea that we are all part of the same world. Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep are such an exceptional pair. Tom Hanks is simply a wonderful actor. I loved this movie so much, I really cried. I thought it was so touching and so wonderful that I cried for two hours. I think this is one of the best movies ever made. I really loved it and I think you will too.

Director/screenwriter Carl Reiner has been making interesting and politically relevant films in his 70-year career. He is a brilliant storyteller and has had a hand in countless comedies and dramas. In his new film "The Big Year," Reiner takes the politics of the gun issue to a new level and we see how the NRA's influence has affected politics in our country, and the effect the NRA has had on the Democratic Party. In the film, Reiner describes how the NRA, the National Rifle Association, and the gun lobby have put the nation's gun laws on a trial. The gun lobby is the one group that has not changed, and they continue to lobby for more guns. While many on the left would be outraged, many on the right, especially conservative Americans, will be pleasantly surprised. The cast in this film includes Bill Murray, Jason Robards, Kevin Bacon, and Diane Lane. I don't think many of the actors could act their way out of a paper bag, but they all play their parts very well. Bill Murray is almost as well-known as Bob Barker, the television host who gave us the superb Bob Barker Show. Bill Murray is perhaps the best actor in the world, and this film shows that. He has a charming, almost cartoon-like way about him, and he is extremely funny. Jason Robards plays a very likable character, who plays a very visible part in the film. He is the most honest actor in Hollywood, and he shows us how powerful his character is. The rest of the cast is not that great, but they all play their parts well. Overall, this is a great film that was worth seeing, especially for the people who support the Second Amendment. As we move toward the elections, and after the Paris attacks, people should keep in mind that the NRA will probably gain more power and influence because of the political climate. I give this film a 9 out of 10 stars.

Out of all the movies made in 2010, this is the one that most of you have been waiting to see. In my opinion, this is the best movie that all of you have been waiting to see. If you have seen the trailer of this movie, then you know what the movie is about. A group of out of work Chicago businessmen take a bus trip, one that will take them through various life changing experiences and show what happens when you stop caring about what the others think. A journey that is filled with humor, sadness, and hope. This movie had me laughing out loud and crying at the same time. It has everything that a movie needs. From the comedy to the drama, the movie is just pure gold. It also has a great message to send to all of you out there. Make sure to see this movie. You will not regret it.

I was introduced to "Boys Don't Cry" by my old high school professor. After seeing the movie, I immediately remembered that it was my favorite movie of all time. That and it's been on my list for a while. I finally got around to watching it last night and found that I really liked it. I like it for its sense of humor, or lack there of, but also for its power. I am pretty sure that this movie will find its audience. It is pretty much a movie that you will not forget. It is an American movie and is best viewed at a time when you are not consumed by other movies that are on the top of the charts. It's better to watch this movie at the times when you are least inclined to watch a movie or will not have the time or energy. There is no need to go to a movie theater, unless you are really bored and do not have a lot of time. This is a good movie to watch when you have a couple hours to kill. The movie is filled with scenes that are not supposed to happen, but they do. It is a wonder of what the makers of the movie could have done with such an extremely short running time. But, the movie is much better than expected. The story is about the time of the Vietnam war. The time of Vietnam, is right when the movie is set and the movie goes right into the jungle. It is set in Vietnam and its a very good time. It is fun, exciting and contains a lot of comedy. It is very similar to "The Breakfast Club" and "Animal House". It is a good movie to watch when you are in a bad mood, and are looking for a good laugh. I am pretty sure that you will enjoy it.

I'm sure that many people would like this film to be more serious than it actually is. This film is made for people who are tired of the tired old Hollywood picture of big, loud and stupid movies. I think that the characters here are also tired of that. The movie is not made to be the best film ever, but the best movie you will ever see. The characters and the story are good, the performances are very good, and the ending is great. I highly recommend this film. It's hard to find a movie that's not about sex and drugs and rock n' roll. This film is the best of the best. 9/10.

The long awaited film from the author of "A Woman in Love" comes in this year's "The American Movie". But what a treat it is! Charlie (Tony Danza) a heroin addict is a super nerd when he enters a computer. His parents tell him that his sister's ex-boyfriend (Blake Clark) is a "machine" and wants Charlie to destroy it. Charlie has a plan, but things get complicated. A Story with a lot of A-List stars and a little bit of Will Smith, but most of all with a stellar performance by Tony Danza. He may not be Will Smith, but he is a brilliant actor. There are many great supporting performances. Annette Benning, Ciaran Hinds, Max Greenfield, are all brilliant. Don't go in expecting a movie, but go in expecting a highly entertaining movie. It is a movie about a broken family and all that comes with it. This movie takes some twists and turns. A classic movie about a broken family. However, I personally would not recommend it to anyone younger than 13. This movie is too dark, violent and serious. But for the grown ups, it is a very entertaining movie with many funny moments.

As a fan of the great American "Inventing the American Dream" film, I always try to come up with a "romantic movie" and this one just nails it. I was also thinking about some of the themes in this movie and when I came across the concept of boundaries, I was just awestruck at the very thought of it. When I first saw this movie, I thought it was a bad movie, but then I watched it again a couple of days later and I was astounded. I am a very cynical person, but this movie really got to me. It was very moving, and also very funny. This is a great movie. It really opened my eyes to the concept of boundaries, and also reminded me that there is not a lot of people who believe in something, even if it makes no sense. In my opinion, this movie is the greatest romantic movie ever. I really recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a great movie that is very thought provoking and also very funny.
