Knoxville himself, whom I've trashed on more than one occasion, is remarkably entertaining here in a role that is both physically and mentally demanding.

Hits all the right notes in comedy, light down to Earth drama, and a resulting tasteful comedy that's worth watching.

A good-natured comedy that isn't particularly interesting or, for that matter, very funny.

It's a bold idea, taking mental handicap as a backdrop for a story about a man's growing up, but this film chickens out as soon as it begins. Nothing is real, nothing is at risk.

Knoxville no um grande ator, mas o filme suficientemente divertido (ainda que no engraado) e tem um bom corao.

Navel-scratching slobs won't enjoy this any more than navel-gazing snobs once they catch a whiff of its overwhelming timidity.

Hilarious comedy with a superb script and strong comic performances - this is undoubtedly the funniest comedy of the year.

Knoxville gives an amazingly risky performance--how many actors would have dared to do this?

With Knoxville in the lead, it's condescending, unoriginal, and boorish.
