    Basically, Cam is one of the most entertainingly inappropriate guardians for impressionable youths since Auntie Mame.

    Drawing from the wellspring of her own life, Forbes' agile tone allows the film to indulge in heartbreak and humor with equal measure.

    Forbes has a delicate but unsentimental approach, which gives her film the same infectious energy that blesses and curses Cameron. The end result feels good without feeling superficial.

    Maya Forbes reveals herself as a sunny optimist, insistent on remembering the ecstatic highs and never dwelling on the despairing lows.

    Saldana has a harder lift, as Maggie is striving for something better yet has to often be reactive. In scenes with the adorable Wolodarsky and Aufderheide, she listens and acts intently. But there are too many times when she’s forced to just look worried. Still, Saldana, like so many things in Forbes’ likable but tricky film, does her best in a tough situation.

    Despite some occasional moments of real sadness and terror, the turmoil in this movie is decidedly on the upbeat.

    Forbes’ script simply cannot make the things she lived through alive for us in anything but the most glib, shallow and contrived way.

They absolutely steal the show - and not in some cutesy, Hollywood kid way. Their acting is tremendous, and it made stomaching the less-than-stellar representation of a manic depressive all the more palatable. Expand

If you've seen the trailer for this release, you've already seen all the best that it has to offer. Expand
