I hated where this movie went in the same way I hated National Lampoon's Summer Vacation with the trip being a disaster with one thing after another getting increasingly worse. Some of which was of a humorous nature, but I can't stand that sort of humor, either.
I hate family drama movies. I don't care how realistic or well done or clever they are. They never sit well with me. And I especially hate the kind that have humor mixed in them--it only makes it worse and more painful to watch.
I will say though that the acting was superb (especially during the scene with Dwayne having an emotional breakdown after finding out he was color blind) and I really liked Frank and Dwayne. If anything, the movie should've just been all about them. A gay, suicidal intellectual and a color blind, silent kid who wants to become a pilot. A bizarre concept, but I'd like to see it.
Don't kill/amputate/etc. me?
