Darkish and fun, but not brilliant
on 5 October 2013
I was told this film was a bit like Harold & Maude. I suppose it resembled it a bit, but it didn't have the same manic sense of humour. If you film a true story, you have to fit it to reality, and in this case it dragged at some points. Jack Black puts in a fine performance and the real 'neighbours' do the job very well. It's also a film about small town Texas. I suppose it's almost a documentary.
