    People will be able to point at the screen and say, "That's me!" and hear a positive message reinforced. What else is cinema for.

    Arteta has a knack for taking typical-sounding comedies and making them better by injecting them with heart, humor and authenticity. That's what he does here, and he does it like a boss.
