Unexpected Canadian Comedy Indie treat! My husband and I tried to muffle our laughter as we watched this comedy on Amtrak. Original, fun, flawed characters, and no sentiment. Tight writing and solid storyline. Watch it! Best sustained laughs this year.
Pat Mills has concocted a subversive, silly and oh-so-comically Canadian version of failed-actor-turned-guidance counselor.
Unconventional but surprisingly funny and hilarious look at a man in a downward spiral who, through posing as a high school counsellor, ends up helping a series of high school students through unconventionally asymmetrical & hilarious, yet surprisingly effective advice. His lies soon catch up with with him and force a humorous resolution that has a positive uplift. An interesting, yet small budget film of worthy interest.
Although it starts to wane in its final stretch, it is mostly ridiculous, irreverent, and much funnier than expected; You have to hand it to Mills, who is essentially a one man wrecking crew here.
Terrible movie. Halfway between stupid and absurd. Can't believe the ratings it got - you shouldn't either.
Guidance is a surprise of a film. It balances humor and heart exceptionally well. Like the rest of the reviews are saying, Pat Mills is one to look out for in the future
A pretty funny dark comedy with a good feel.... make sense?
This movie starts off great, but crashes in the third act, when it drives too far into fantastical territory, abandoning its on-point realistic dramedy vibe for a farcical on-the-run trope. If this film had stuck to being the funny version of 'Detachment', it would have been a must-see. As it is, it's a skip. Even if you did a "Where are They Now?" for everyone you knew in high school and middle school, this will still be more disappointing in the wasted talent category than the kid with a 4.2 GPA and Ivy League scholarship who became a faceless bureaucrat.
Funnier than expected. This film doesn't quite have enough heart and soul to be recommended. Still it offers some very funny moments.
Pat Mills delivers a fantastic performance as a washed-up child star, but the film itself stumbles in quite a few areas. Overall, a solid dark comedy with some final act issues.
