Poor story and acting. I wasn't bothered watching the whole DVD.

This movie fell flat for me. Everything was lacking something. Don’t bother.

A well written coming-of-age film involving two best friends and a quirky new acquaintance who break free from their parents and seek out their own sense of independence by running away and finding their escape in the woods nearby. They construct a home of their own and deal with their emotional bonds. I found it to be wonderful, sweet, and very entertaining. The jokes are fast and spirited. On the whole, it is mostly funny, but has its serious moments, too. I genuinely enjoyed it and definitely would recommend it.

This is not a good movie. The characters are unappealing and flat, they hardly change throughout the film, the soundtrack is terrible, the fake beards are a joke, and it's rarely funny.

I love coming of age movies, but this one sucks. Don't waste your time.

I thought this was a very good coming of age movie. It was well written and well acted. Well worth the time I spent watching it.

Was pretty entertaining for the first 30-45 minutes but became way too precious in the second half.

Smart script, effective acting, some sweet moments,.. and a subtle commentary on American surburban culture. A triumph of intelligent writing, skilled cinematography, and a committed cast ...working on a bare bones budget.

(while playing MONOPOLY) "Do you remember when Dad quit playing because you wouldn't sell him the B&O?" "Do I remember when he called his own daughter a fear-mongering Chinaman? Yes, I do, because I am neither a man nor Chinese."
