This is a story about a 14-year-old boy named Duncan (Liam James) who is very quiet, introverted and boring yet comes into his own by becoming friends with a "guy that drives" named Owen (Sam Rockwell). Owen is an employee of Water Wizz, a popular water park.

The movie begins when his divorced mother Pam (Toni Collette) and her boyfriend Trent (Steve Carell) and his daughter Steph (Zoe Levin) goes on a family vacation at a beach cottage in New York. Duncan has a rough time fitting in and no one can figure him out. Trent keeps picking on him which makes him feel even more insecure. You will be surprised at Steve Carell's character, it is so not like him.

One day Duncan rides a bike and finds Water Wizz Water Park. He meets a carefree guy named Owen whom he strikes a friendship with and eventually Owen offers him a job at the park. As time goes by, Owen becomes a mentor to Duncan telling him you've got to make things happen in life. Duncan slowly opens up and as summer goes by, Duncan's confidence level is building and he connects with his neighbor Susanna, whose parents are also divorced.

I just didn't want this movie to end, it's wholesome, funny and Owen has this unusual sense of humor.

This sleeper hit was written and directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash. Scenes for this film were shot in Onset, Mass., Marshfield, Mass., Wareham, Mass. and at Water Wizz in East Wareham, Mass.

At Sundance, this movie received a standing ovation. The film lasted 103 minutes and is rated PG-13. I would recommend this movie for everyone.

OVERALL RATING: A
