edy and Romance
1 hr. 54 min.
A coming-of-age comedy following the life of Jimmy Livingston (Jake Gyllenhaal), a young man born without immunities and raised in a manufactured world provided by his well-intentioned but misguided mother (Swoosie Kurtz). When his girlfriend (Marley Shelton) rushes off to Niagara Falls with her new fianc�, he builds himself a bubble suit to help him travel fast and sets out on a cross-country trek to to find her and win her back. Along the way he has many absurd and comedic adventures.
MPAA Rating: PG-13 for language and crude sexual humor.

For a Adam Sandler knock-off this movie was suprisingly enjoyable.
It's predictable, not all that funny, but still, likable. I though Verne "Minime" Troyer stole the show, and Fabio as "Gil" was a riot. Parts were very funny. It could have been much better, but it is still Rentable.
