Product Overview

"Nancy Nestor (Wendie Malik) sees herself as the perfect wife and mother, and now that her teenage genius son Hal has been named high school valedictorian, her own moment of public glory is close at hand. Unfortunately, it's been over three months since Hal locked himself in an upstairs bathroom to work out the mathematical equations in his head while also watching the cheerleader next door (Danica McKellar) bounce on a trampoline. To Nancy's dismay, no amount of threatening or coaxing seems to have any effect on Hal. Noted psychologist Dr. Curly Weeks (Ed Begley, Jr.) comes to her aid, in more ways than one, to develop a program that just might get her obsessive-compulsive son out of the bathroom and onto the graduation podium."

Editors Note
Note This critically acclaimed film festival hit stars the always watchable Wendie Malick (of JUST SHOOT ME) as Nancy, a proud, perfectionist housewife and the mother of high school valedictorian Hal (Justin Long of DODGEBALL and TV ED). Nancy can't wait for all the attention and congratulations she'll receive when Hal gets this honor--but unfortunately, Hal has been locked in a bathroom for months, trying to solve math equations and obsessing over the beautiful girl next door (Danica McKellar). Full of quirky, fleshed out characters, the movie earned comparisons to the offbeat comedy of NAPOLEON DYNAMITE.
