The Way Way Back

{4.5/5} “Yeah, you’re going to have to take off. I’m getting complaints. You’re having way too much fun. It’s making everyone uncomfortable.”

The Way Way Back, released in 2013

Duncan goes with his family to a beach house for the summer, but he doesn’t like his mom’s boyfriend. As one character puts it, summer at the beach is like spring break for adults. Duncan discovers a nearby waterpark and gets a job there with his friend Owen, whom he met playing Pac Man. Although Owen is a grown man, he’s a lot of fun. The movie is serious and funny. Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney are hilarious. Steve Carrell and Toni Collette also star.

Directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (co-directors of the TV movie Fatrick).
