The film is not as “hilariously funny” as the box promises, but this film is quite amusing. It holds the middle somewhere between “Forrest Gumb” and “Fargo” (a little closer to the first title). Albert Burroughs is a “retard” fishing wonderkid who has won an awfull lot of money at fishing tournaments, so he draws attention of certain people. The story isn’t really original and the film is even quite predictable, but still not a bad watch. Playing in the same area as “Fargo” and with similar shady figures Albert is tried to be manipulated for obvious reasons. With amusing scenes and nice dialogues the story continues, shining its light far ahead.
