This colorful, modern comedy revolves around 10-year-old boy genius Henry James Herman (Jason Spevack) and his fervently left-wing single mother Patricia (Toni Collette), who works at the local university's cafeteria. A misfit from birth, Henry's precocious, rabble-rousing ways catch up with him when he gets kicked out of school for writing "Manifestos on the Nature of Truth." Meanwhile, 12-year-old Audrey (Samantha Weinstein) has her own problems because of her single father, university professor Dr. Slavkin O'Hara (Michael Sheen), who used her as the test subject for his best-selling book Born Gay or Made that Way? Needless to say, she gets a not-so-nice nickname from her classmates. When Henry scores a scholarship to the university as a child prodigy, the two families cross paths and everything they knew about their lives is thrown to the wind.

This started out adorably quaint & bright for me but then it took a turn somewhere from exceptional to self-indulgent.

What a funny, strange little movie :) Quirky misfits of all stripes. Good for ages 13 & up if they aren't especially sensitive to references & images of death in the family. I like Toni Collette more & more, but would like to see her in a role other than "all too humanly flawed yet loving mom"

This movie starts out like a great little black comedy but after half an hour the humour disappears and it turns into yet another boring and predictable "heart-warming" family movie. Big disappointment.

I liked it! Dark humor but definitely very funny at times. I really liked Frank Moore who played Stan Herman (Grandpa) who was quite a character. I'll have to check out more movies that he is in...great acting that appeared almost effortless.
