Not a laugh out loud comedy, but I found myself smiling a lot. This is a very pleasant movie. There's something intriguing about almost all of the many characters, Mumford most of all. It just always seemed like I was curious about what he would say or do next, even though everything he said or did was very low key. This actor nailed his character.
Quiet, simply delightful little film about a man pretending to be a psychologist in a little town and the people he helps, including himself. Perfectly charming movie, with a wonderful cast. As usual, Hope Davis shines.
This is an example of the perfect movie. It makes you feel good while watching, the cast is the best ensamble i've seen in any movie and you feel emotionally connected to each of the characters and what they are going through. Mumford is always overloooked and if you haven't seen it and you have the opportunity to, please take it. You will enjoy it.
Unusual film with an engrossing main character who thinks he can avoid life by being an observer. Lots of stars you'd never expect show up including Jason Lee as a geek millionaire and Alfre Woodward as his love interest!
Main reason I watched this was cause its Zooey Deschanels first movie, I hadnt heard of it before or knew what it was about. It was enjoyable I guess then it gets to a kind of twist half way through thats pretty interesting, I think in the end it could have gone a heaps better way but it was alright. Weird seeing Zooey back here she looked a little different and her voice sounded weird. was good to see Jason Lee in this too.
One of the very best movies that few people know about. It's lighthearted and charming, with a little whimsy thrown in for good measure. The entire cast is a delight, particularly Loren Dean as the small town therapist who is just as much an odd ball as his clients.
This quiet charmer of a piece by Lawrence Kasdan posits, like the old Bacherach number suggests, " what the world needs now is love,sweet love". Loren Dean is perfectly cast as the unassuming and sedate soul prepared to hear whatever it is one might have to say ... only who is he exactly? Don't let this underrated bit of old style whimsy pass you by.
