The most interesting thing in film — this storyline with a water Park. But not a bad idea summer movie buried with total boredom and dullness. Easy movie trying to knit eyebrows and to depict the tragedy.

After watching the beginning of the film one gets the impression that all surrounds the main character (except for the neighbor girls and employees of the Park), some psychological disorders.

The main character is surrounded by stupid people not talking about. They look very not gray perform the role of cardboard scenery. Sometimes they even irritate your unnecessary, pointless fuss.

The main character is also not possess the conviction. The impression that the Director simply does not know how to transfer the habits of a notorious teenager. From this guy looks like pretending to be unhappy. If  the"mind Games" shyness was transferred to the level of body language, here... the silence, the look in gender eternal dissatisfaction.

Actually the whole movie on a pull Sam Rockwell. But his character is a typical character of the Rockwell — charismatic dolt with stretched t-shirt, not respecting the opinions of others.

Summary: the Film will appeal to teenagers transitional age, arriving in depression. They close eyes humanoid characters and imbued with the problems of a teenager. Others will forget this film immediately after viewing.

As shot

The main character, like a budding serial killer, in the beginning of the film does not just not able to communicate with people, he practically is able to speak. It stepfather in the performance of Steve Carell tries to stir, annoy, make the change. And what a guy doing that to the final change? Nothing. Do absolutely nothing, because the world, it turns out, revolves around him and only filled with good people whose sole purpose — to help him in life. Anna Sophia Robb, which is so great that for just one date with I ready to go on war crimes, she rolls up to him in their dialogues speaks for both becomes the girl, though the guy did for not done. Sam Rockwell personally takes the initiative to make friends with him he be a great friend, and then do the same thing all the rest of the staff of the Park. Work? Sam Sam Rockwell it offers, he doesn't even thought to ask.

Was still one time when the guy was supposed to prove the presence of eggs by the expulsion from the Park has accumulated a critical mass of nonconformists. I expected to the scandal, ora, a manifestation of nature, but gopari were the most friendly gopari on light brand quietly piled, previously praised in the form of loud applause is absolutely miserable dancing skills guy. And so, do not showing the character, he immediately gets respect with colleagues to the water Park.

The result: the guy appear girl, friends, experiences and the money, although he has made absolutely no effort to obtain.

Steve Carell here's a completely normal guy, which, as already mentioned, trying to provoke the guy on actions. Moreover, even the writers that you know, so to still show the villainous entity Carell they make it to change the mother of the protagonist, otherwise the viewer is not neither one reason to believe Carell antagonist of the film.

In this movie, in General, boring to watch, there are funny moments, made all pretty bright, positive and in summer, great Carell, Rockwell and Allison Janney smartly played Comedy, Anna Sophia Robb unspeakably beautiful, glavgeroy to which I persistent antipathy, at this, too, played well — Liam James looks confident.

Verdict: filmed well, but plot derived from his idea that no need to do anything in life to get what you want because it will come in the best instances, not allows you to rate above 4/10.

Warning: individuals under the age of 21 years viewing strictly forbidden! Movie brilliantly motivates young immature minds continue to lie on the couch in anticipation of the inevitable miracle.

How to remove

To force the main character to try to achieve the objectives, to show that intentional disrespect his Carell angry forced to move, to prove to him and myself that it can. He had strong girls, myself to find work, most of Rockwell's willingness to work with two and already working to find friends and through the manifestations of character to win their respect. He could build relationships with half-sister, who also thought of him with a cloth and for Carell not had to come up with a mistress, to show that the guy he can resist, could safely on all household points to show that the guy personally, his efforts winning the girl, job, friends, money and respect, has changed, Carell is noticed and treated it's different.

Stumbled on this film quite by accident, studying the filmography of Sam Rockwell. How many other wonderful films, this successfully passed our large screens, and if not "Three billboards", I would, perhaps, never about him know.

The film tells the story of the boy-a teenager, which my mother and her relatively new husband on the dragged the country. I think many of you since a shudder thinking about travel the cottage in the summer, and then there such a company. Boyfriend frankly turns tricks with a neighbor's wife with which is to say, been intimately acquainted, mother of mainly sadness at home, so our hero reeling where can longs. In the end, he finds "shelter" in the local water Park, where the team is not even the team, rather a large family, the main trouble-maker and games which is, in fact, the hero of Sam Rockwell. As it is easy to guess, this family to temporarily replace the boy of his family present at all this summer.

The film is very versatile, it not a drama and not a Comedy, but something in between, depending on the angle of view in the moment. Then you see pictures of a small town in the winter, when Park, of course, closed and everything stops in anticipation of the new season, all sit bars and look at hours — when you can go to sleep? Then you're rooting for mother of the main character, so she already left her unsympathetic male and I do that Lee. The laugh charming Rockwell, realizing, however, that in too large doses, it still, perhaps, may get.

In General and General, my opinion is the film, leaving you sad and bright feeling. Light — because at least this summer the boy-hero has passed so that he was happy. Sad — because even if they will come back (not the fact), it will have a completely different story, other people, because per year the boy can degenerate into another kid and to forget about this because Rockwell, most likely, will forever be stuck in the role balgaristika adult teenager, not yet fall winter with the roof or something in this spirit. But it — later. And now, thanks to this film for debunked the myth that this movie already 20 years how not to remove. It turns out, all happen)
