I loved this movie. The whole feel of it is at once happy and sad, unpredictable, lyrical...and funny! Definitely my kind of off-beat, eccentric humor. The characters are original and captivating and the acting quite good. It's the Michael Douglas from Wonder Boys but even better: less cynical and even more lovably eccentric. Evan Rachel Wood does a wonderful job as the daughter...nuanced, comical, real. Channels Zooey Deschanel. The story itself is a fun one - wacky, quixotic... about two people accepting each other for who they are. All in all it probably wouldn't be extraordinary to most people, but personally I think it's great. A fun and pleasant ride! :)
