Movie Info

When a business trip ends abruptly, distressed middle-aged electrical engineer Al Fountain (John Turturro) decides to seek out a lake that harbors happy childhood memories. There he meets The Kid (Sam Rockwell), a free spirit whose quirky backwoods existence runs contrary to Fountain's tightly wound manner, forcing him to live more loosely and be receptive to new adventures, including the arrival of the pretty Dupre sisters, Floatie (Catherine Keener) and Purlene (Lisa Blount).

    Love Sam Rockwell. Did not love this film. John Turturro's character was on my nerves from the get go. I personally don't see how one weekend spent with a free spirit can change a man's whole outlook on life. His poor, suffering wife and child seemed RELIEVED he was away from home. I can't blame them. I have to say I could feel no kinship with the main character, and the movie just seemed pointless to me.
