Shapiro is such a cool name. Like a superhero or something. Anyway, I'm waiting the movie to load to watch it the second time. :D

It's a cool coming of age flick set up in the early 90's. I loved the soundtrack since it set up the story perfectly. Josh Peck surprised me in this, he played a good stoner and was a good match with his psychiatrist who was Ben Kingsley's character. I liked it, was really funny at parts and had good acting. Of course I do believe the main character's problems weren't really that interesting, what was interesting was the relationships he made during the summer. Definetly worth a watch.

Havent seen this film in a long time so decided 2 rewatch, Great coming of age story tho Josh Peck and Ben Kingsley steal the show. And an amazing 90's hiphop soundtrack too which is hard to beat.cool little cameo by Method Man also

This movie is why I watch Josh Peck movies. Because I keep hoping to see him do as well as he did in this movie. I loved it and all the people in it. Their performances were great and the ending was the best part, and so original.

As far as 'coming of age' dramas go, this one definitely goes near the top of the list. Josh Peck throws in easily his best performance as Shapiro, Olivia Thirlby proves herself as one of the best young actors today and Ben Kingsley is his usual magnetic self. I loved the time period in which the film takes place as well as all the sights and sounds from that era. RIP Kurt 10/10
