Not for everyone, and what makes it good is that it points out that it's not for everyone.
18 September 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very interesting composition by Mike White, wrote and directed it.

Not as good as when he wrote School of Rock but I enjoined it for what it was

The movie points out the bubble of white privilege, which I think was brilliant considering the movie itself is a bubble of white privilege.

Ben Stiller plays a middle age hetero white man (it's important to note that for the story as it turns out) whose going through a bit of a crisis as he tours his son around prospective colleges and overthinks where he is in his life in comparison to those he went to college with.

It's a good role for Stiller who pin points that point in life where we all overthink the moments of our lives and ponder what could have been, based on superficial info and forget how good life is where you are.

At times it can be annoying watching as Stiller narrates his characters voice, which complains about a life I don't really see a problem with but then the movie points out the concept of how someone always has it better than you like you always have something better than others, and gives it a balance. The movie had this low tone that made for some brilliant short yet effective conversations with Stiller and other cast members, a lot of good dialog. And I'm happy that the movie was not as predicable as I was expecting.

It does seem like a certain movie for a certain crowd that I'm not a part of, but I did get something out of it, and enjoyed what I got.
