    I'll have to rewatch this at some point to see if I like it more upon rewatch, but as it stands, I don't think this is as good as it could be.

A lot of people take this as a comedy, and there are definitely some pretty funny mlments (James slamming the door after arguing with Lars, the therapist thinking he's in the band, them playing at a prison) but it's more emotional and heartfelt than it gets credit for. At the start James isn't all that emotionally mature and Lars is a self-absorbed jerk. Kirk…
