About the Movie

After months of being alone, sad, busy, sidetracked, free, lofty, late and away from his kids, Lenny (Ronald Bronstein), 34 with graying frazzled hair, picks his kids up from school. Every year he spends of couple of weeks with his sons Sage (Sage Ranaldo), 9, and Frey (Frey Ranaldo), 7. Lenny juggles his kids and everything else all within a midtown studio apartment in New York City. He ultimately faces the choice of being their father or their friend with the idea that these two weeks must last 6 months. In these two weeks, a trip upstate, visitors from strange lands, a mother, a girlfriend, "magic" blankets, and complete lawlessness seem to take over their lives. The film is a swan song to excuses and irresponsibility’s; to fatherhood and self-created experiences, and to what its like to be truly torn between being a child and being an adult.

Better buying it than renting it (I LOVE IT)

I enjoyed every aspect of it, every scene was well portrayed, messages clear, and I could not get enough of it!!!
This movie is worth not only renting but owning it, I rented it twice and decided to purchase it from so many times I watch it and enjoy every time.
The ideology is great, and I simply cannot wait for Ben and Josh to come out with a new movie.
Very talented, very original, and very amusing.
