Nat Fraxton and Jim Rash’s The Way Way Back is about Duncan (Liam James), who is basically forced to go on a vacation with his mother (Toni Collette) and her relatively (but realistically) unlikable boyfriend, Trent (Steve Carrell).
Two new fall dramas.
Both premiered on the same Monday night a couple of months ago.
Both set in Washington, D.C.
Both based on completely and utterly implausible scenarios, each practically begging you to disregard the improbability.
2013 has proven to be a strong year for coming of age dramas with The Spectacular Now, The Kings of Summer and what proves to be the best of the bunch, The Way Way Back. 561 more words
Before I begin, as a disclaimer let me admit that I am a huge fan of Steve Carell. Not a lot of people really like his sense of humor and it is possible that he might even scare movie goers off, because they don’t like his type of comedy, but personally I think he is hilarious.
