I thought I'd be able to find some parallels to The Royal Tennenbaums or even The Squid and the Whale, but this movie stands out aaaaaaall on its own! Really nuts, but there's a freedom in it that gives me hope. I mean my life, no matter how bad it gets will NEVER be this bad! And the main lead, he gets through it pretty ok. Also, the music in this movie is stellar, and the touching scenes, the music played is just gorgeous. Overall, very exploratory movie, worth the watch a few times over! 8/10.

This was a good movie but i would only watch it ones! i just thought it dragged out a little, but i find it hard to concentration for very long on movies so the fact i watched it to the end is a good thing :'D 6/10

Well, I seem to have a different opinion than most other commenters. I thought the movie was crap. I went out and bought the movie and book (combo deal at a store), because I had heard such good things about it. The characters were impossible to like, bratty and full of themselves, and all together unpleasant. It was a chore to get through the book, and impossible to finish the movie. Unfortunately I had paid for both. This was a few years ago, but the awfulness of it left such a bad taste in my mouth, when I saw this here I had to comment.

In the words of mary j blige, "Im I crazy or Im I sane....pick one they're all the same...looking for someone to love me." That pretty much sums up the characters. Kinda of a kewl watch though.

This is an amazing and unforgettable movie. If you haven't seen it you should give it a watch. 10/10

I think this is one of those movies that you have to see for yourself to have an opinion about it. It can have different impact on different people. As for my opinion, it is a funny twisted movie.some parts made me laugh so hard. it has been long time since a movie made me laugh like that:)

This film about a dysfunctional family will make any viewer's seem positively sane. Crazy and neurotic, yet at the end will leave you with a smile for dear Augusten. 3/5

I love this movie, probably one of my favorite movies of all time. The Book is even better. Couldn't get 1 & 2 to work, and like the guy said some of the videos didn't have sound. But i would keep looking for this movie, it is worth seeing. This movie, is really dry, and awkward sometimes, but that is what i love about it!

I'm pretty impressed with this movie, it's not the genre I usually choose, I'm glad I did. Now to find the book!

the book is amazing but the movie does a pretty good job interpreting the aesthetic to screen. the movies worth a watch...great soundtrack.
