a man feeling the pressure of mid-life, and a new book deadline communes with his imaginary friend superhero named excellent man, rents a house in montauk in the off season, and finds a kindred spirit in an outcast teenage girl.
liked it. i wasn't too sure in the beginning. i enjoy movies about kindred spirits. it's the anne shirley in me. but in the beginning i though jeff daniels was a little bit too mid-life crisis, but the more distance i have from it the better i like it. it was filmed well too. the whole imaginary friend aspect was handled in a rather great way. good, good, good. it may be slow for some, but i thought it was good. i didn't really find it funny though. don't believe netflix when they tell you it's an indie comedy. it's more indie drama. 85:15 i'd say and i'm being generous in the funny end of the ratio.
