I saw the Way, Way Back last night. Pretty funny. I enjoyed it. Typical coming-of-age story, but somehow entertaining. I thought it captured Cape Cod pretty decently well. The place definitely feels like that when I visit, but I'm no where near "local" enough to make a call like that
Still, kind of a subdued comedy... no real major laughs or anything. Just a nice, feel good tale of a 14 year old kid spending his summer at the Cape. Steve Carell was kind of miscast, but he pulls it off really well despite that. Good range on him.
Oops, I forgot to give the Way, Way Back a grade. I'll give it a solid par... maybe a missed GIR with a nice sand save. Even though I didn't like Lost in Translation, this movie for some reason kind of had a similar vibe to it, in a good way. Also, not a whole lot happens, but for whatever reason, the movie is charming and kind of refreshing. I'm not sure why. The reviews basically said the same thing: It's nothing new, but somehow it's got a good feel to it.
