Directed by
Nat Faxon
Jim Rash

Liam James stars in writer-actor-directors Nat Faxon and Jim Rash's coming-of-age comedy-drama, whose cast features Steve Carell, Toni Collette, AnnaSophia Robb and Sam Rockwell. Teenager Duncan is going on holiday with his mum, her new boyfriend Trent and his daughter. On the way there, it's revealed how little self-confidence Duncan has, and Trent's genuine intention of getting Liam out of his shell and interacting with people. Initially, Duncan shows little enthusiasm, but this changes after taking his first-ever job. At the water park, he gets on well with his boss, the amiable owner Owen, and even gradually begins to find the assurance to talk to Susanna, an attractive holidaymaker roughly his age... With comic turns from Allison Janney, Maya Rudolph, Amanda Peet and Rob Corddry. Edited for content.
