Best part of story, including ending: This movie is simple and brilliant. It is interesting to watch the father son dynamic.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene or part in the movie is when Woody loses his dentures and they retrace their steps in order to find them.

Opinion about the main character: I like the main characters' mysteriousness. He is a drunk, yes, but there is something about him as a father and his background that makes him so interesting.
