I'm going to have to agree with all the other commenters. The review just sounds hateful and snobby. This is a great little film. It has heart and tries to be honest. Giamatti and Ryan are great and the kid Schaffer is amazing and he's a non-actor. Also, I completely disagree that this film is at all related to Juno or Little Miss Sunshine. Those movies tried to be witty in a snobbish way. The problems and "quirks" of their characters were exploited for "indie laughs". This movie instead treats it's characters with more humanity and realism. It's actually a lot less quirky and hipster and so will therefore not get certain accolades those films got but you are way, way off base lumping it in with them. Sure, it is a little contrived but it clearly loves and respects its characters.
