    Score of 4 well the movie should be drama/comedy but in fact it was just a "biography-like-part" where the student is searching for himself in the college. Comedy part, I giggled 2 times that was it, drama? Almost no drama at all. Very slow development of the movie I wouldn't recommend this to anyone I'm almost sorry I wasted my time...

    Just earnest enough to blend its religious theme with a beer-chugging hero for a surprisingly contemporary look at faith.

    Taylor's film is never boring, and it has some beautiful, thought-provoking moments. In a genre in which preaching to the choir seems to be the norm, this film is a welcome entry.

    As for the title, it's a nod to the jazz music that Don's off-the-grid dad shares with his more buttoned-up son. But, like most everything else here, it feels more contrived than authentic.
