Rotten Tomatoes


Set in1980s Penticton, the film follows awkward teen Mike Drinkwater who has trouble fitting in and is bullied by his antagonist rival, wealthy school jock Luke Ryan. Mike’s father Hank, played by Eric McCormack, who lives for defrauding insurance companies and the government, is also dealing with his own longstanding condemnation of Luke’s father. A young American girl moves in next door and, while recovering from her own personal tragedy, helps to transform the lives of the people around her. The film is unapologetically Canadian—there are scenes at a Tim Hortons and a subplot pertaining to a Wayne Gretzky rookie card, along with several recognizable Penticton landmarks and locations.
