Tomatometer quote iconCheck all cynicism at the door and allow A Man Called Otto to tug at your heartstrings with its tried-and-true tune -- it just might sing.

Tara McNamara quote iconNeighborly love warms comedy about suicidal curmudgeon.

Jim Judy quote iconthe offering definitely gives off enough warm and fuzzy vibes to pull on the heartstrings and make us care about the characters. And give budding misanthropes like me hope that I can avoid ending up like those crusty old men I used to come across as a younger person.
