Trivia

The imaginary conversations with Max (Jeff Garlin) and a young version of his dad (Timothy Olyphant) were inspired by Garlin's own father, who passed away shortly before the film was made. Garlin said he wanted to imagine what it would be like to talk to his dad about how kids' sports were in the past. See more »

Enjoyable!!
6 February 2014 | by eboogymanSee all my reviews

Not the most perfect movie and doesn't aspire to be. However it is unique in the sense that the comedy doesn't come from situations but from the interactions between the characters. The movie is about a comedy writer interviewing little league suburbanite parents who each seem to be suffering from a distinct and hilarious personality disorder. Each of the suburbanites are played by top notch comedian whom I've seen in other roles and have enjoyed. Ironically Garlin plays the straight man to the wacky cast of characters he's forced to deal with.

If I had one criticism, it would be that the film had a lack of an ending. However, despite that fact, it didn't take away from the ride, and during that ride you knew you were experiencing something unique anyway. Uniqueness is what I feel like is missing from most movies and in that, this film delivers. A hidden gem and worth a watch, I look forward to more from Jeff Garlin.
