First I must say I am huge fan of all involved and I simply adore the work of Wes Anderson. That being said I am not blind, deaf or dumb and I retain the capacity to hold my own thought process. This movie is an insult, it's a shame it was released, and it's a sure sign that the movie industry has lost it's way. It's clear that nearly everyone on screen and probably involved with production has been reduced in talent by drug abuse. It is with deep regret that I must state how obvious the drug abuse is with all involved but I can only hope they seek help. Mr. Murray please get help for your addiction to drugs and as well Wes, get help. Immediately felt less of a person for having watched this disgrace.

Waste of money and time. Popcorn was good and that was the only positive. I too had talked my husband into seeing it and will have to live that one down. Should have walked out after they killed the dog.

I went to see this movie because from the trailer it looked quirky and original. If you like something a little off, humor that isn't run of the mill, then you may like this film. The casting was genius, lots of big names but nobody trying to upstage anyone. The 12-year-old girl was fabulous. I didn't grow up in the 60s but I was a 12-year-old girl once and this movie reminded me of that time, when boys first come onto your radar, in a fun and heartwarming sort of way. The music was perfect, the acting was brilliant (especially from the kids), the directing was clever and the storyline was not run-of-the-mill. Yes, the humor was deadpan so don't see it if you don't like deadpan. No, it's not an action film but I wouldn't say it was slow. If you don't like leisurely Sunday strolls in the park, this film might not be for you. If you like a meandering pleasant stroll down memory lane, then this film might be more your speed.

Horrible in every way. Don't even think about going. Not even if it's free.

First, let me say that I'm not a teenager who simply can't understand avant guard movies or something intelligently written and creatively filmed. Next, let me say that this movie was the ONLY movie I walked out on this year. It was cinematically stylish, but felt like I was watching some inside joke that only the director and actors knew. I grew up in the 60's and this did NOT bring anything back except my desire to get a refund on my way out. It was slow, slow and ummm slow....like watching someone pour cold maple syrup out of a bottle and then at the end showing you credits....not that I waited around for credits. They call it "deadpan humor" in the reviews...trust me, it was just dead. The storyline was non-existant, the casting monumentally off [except maybe Bill Murray] and the music so poorly chosen, one would think it was some shuffle from a nursing home ipod mix. If someone tells you it was a uniquely different experience, check to see if they took their meds. This was uniquely terrible. If you SNUCK into the theater to see this, you'll still want something in return for your pain and suffering.

This movie was probably the dumbest I've ever watched. How did they ever get anyone to invest in this? A 12 year MARRYING...oh, please. We should have gotten up and left.

What a stupid movie! We could not believe how bad it was. Name actors/actresses in this - how did they ever agree to this dumb script. A movie to walk out of - for sure.

Maybe I'm missing something. A friend told me that this movie was SLOW and BORING, but because of the great reviews from the critics, I insisted that my husband and I go see this movie. I will be apologizing to my husband for a long time. This movie was v-e-r-y BORING and SLOW.

I can't believe this movie hasn't gotten any press! So different from anything out there and totally entertaining. Do see if you are tired of the same ol' same ol. Also, a great cast.

This movie is one of those happy surprises that you experience every once in a long while after selecting what film to see on a Saturday night . Be advised that if you are an Adam Sandler fan and think that his last effort "That's My Boy" is a work of cinematic comic genius then, this is absolutely not the film for you. However, if you are still bit of a romantic and a fan of subtle deadpan humor coupled with a creative story line then, you're going to be in for a treat.

This is a unique coming-of-age fantasy flick, placed in the mid-1960s. It was most probably the product of the mind of someone looking back with humor on those summer camp adventures. It's very, very nice to see an original movie . I recommend it highly.
