Description

In the hip Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook, single dad and record store owner Frank (Nick Offerman) is preparing to send his hard-working daughter Sam (Kiersey Clemons) off to college, while being forced to close his vintage shop. Hoping to stay connected through their shared musical passions, Frank urges Sam to turn their weekly "jam sesh" into a father-daughter live act. After their first song becomes an Internet breakout, the two embark on a journey of love, growing up and musical discovery.

    Great music and acting. The whole lesbian thing caught me off guard but overall it was a great movie.
  • If you're not a musician, you won't like it (as much)

    This movie is a pretty good coming of age/general life struggle film as well as being a pretty good realistic demonstration of how regular people make music. I loved it and even some of my non musical friends liked it. If you undersand the emotions, you'll probably enjoy.
  • Loved it!

    Please. This movie is a drama. It’s ok at best. It’s not a comedy just because nick offerman is in it. False advertising. This movie has great acting and cinematography but is unfunny and boring as hell.
  • Not for me

    I lost interest at the first kiss. Is it just me cause I thought ‘it’ was not all that common, or more so in HollyFantasyWood?
  • Not harmless.

    What could have been a really sweet, touching father-daughter movie is marred by the fact that it's not just a father-daughter movie, it's also a lesbian relationship movie. This piece of information might be important to dads who understand the dangers of that lifestyle, or folks who just don't want to spend their entertainment dollars on films that celebrate it.
  • O Knows Drama; Ferrell Ruined the Title

    Nick Offerman continues the precedent set by Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump of comedic actors proving themselves in dramatic roles. Offerman’s Frank Fisher faces what one would consider a life event itself not capable of sustaining a feature: his daughter Sam prepares to head off to college. Yes, it’s a story about learning to cope with change and loss, but it is what the empty nest forces him to face that gives the character range: an unusually-strong father-daughter bond was forged in the wake of his wife’s untimely passing when Sam was a young girl, and it’s clear Frank never properly mourned. Add to that the financial situation forcing him to close the record store he spend the last fifteen years operating, and we see a Frank is being forced to do what he should have done years earlier: grow up. This film was more serious than the dramedy I expected, but very welcome in that regard. Watching Frank grow and come to accept the inevitable changes to come and the past with which he never came to terms was a touching experience. I highly recommend the film. The title comes from a song Sam writes and records with Frank early in the film. By the end, you’ll agree this film SHOULD have been called “Everything Must Go;” that song is performed toward the end, and the title beautifully captures the film’s theme of coming to terms with change. Unfortunately, a Will Ferrell vehicle with that title must have been too recently released for someone’s comfort, and the result is a big missed opportunity. Title aside, this is worth your time. Then, if you really want to get some quality Offerman comedy, check out the short film “The Gunfighter,” and enjoy his hilarious narration . . . which the characters can all hear.
