I usually don't watch comedy movies, but I loved this. From the beginning you are on Eli's side and rooting for him and his "counselor" to get along. And it eventually happens although it took a while. You know the reason why he won't go into the pool even though he over protests that he isn't afraid of water. Even so, I cried when he finally did - yeah seriously, I was that into the movie. This is a feel good-tear jerker. And don't cheat yourself out of watching until the true end. Watch through the credits to see where the story originated from. Awesome.
