Reality intervenes when the illness of his ex-addict father forces the anger his irony masks to the surface and he has to decide if staying in a fantasy world is worth the consequences.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The filmmakers ended up with a teen flick of Tinkertoy sensitivity in which the assorted story arcs ... are all setup and no follow-through.
Fresh: The characters talk like smart, unpredictable people, and Kelly Ernswiler is one of a kind.
Rotten: Without any of the dramatic transitions, we're left with a pileup of scenes, none of them very funny, and a thin, linear plot.
Fresh: Surprisingly sweet and smart.
