A rare pleasure for a movie that finds it's way into my town and I was surprise by how good is the movie. The movie is "The Way, Way Back" and that movie is the answer to the horrible movie "Grown Ups 2." Way Back is way better than "Grown Ups 2" because the writing is better, the script is better, better performers and not a potty joke in sight. The film nopens with a teen named Duncan played by Liam James who boyfriend (played by Steve Carell in a heel role) who tries to drive a weg between him and his mother. While there, he came upon a water park where he befriend the owner played by Sam Rockwell. Though him and the employees of the park, he learn a lesson about life. I like the performance by Anna Sophie Robb. It's been six years since "Bridge to Terabithia" and she has grown a lot. The film has lots of great moments and I really love this movie.

Really liked this movie out of ones they had out in a long time. It was crowded and the people were hysterically laughing. Steve Carell, even though he played the bad part was great. The camp counselor, don't know his name was great also. He made the movie I thought. Can't wait to go again.

A coming-of-age movie that is a little off-beat in tone but endearing nonetheless.

Anyone who was an awkward teenager, whether at 14 or not, can recognize the stilted conversations with peers and parent-aged people alike. Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney deliver standout performances, but the entire cast works together to create a completely believable and enjoyable story.
