Terri (2011)

Director: Azazel Jacobs. Cast: Jacob Wysocki, John C. Reilly, Bridger Zadina. 105 min. Rated R. Comedy/Drama.

Opening shot: a fat slob lying in a bathtub, too lazy to get up. A most disgusting image. But no ... Terri is about how appearances can deceive you, and how what we perceive as a chip on one's shoulder can actually be that person's strongest asset. Unless we accomplish the impossible feat of knowing people's inner core, or see through all the "pretend" games they play to assimilate into the society, any judgment is considered moot and ridiculous. Captivating performances by the always lovable John C. Reilly, and newcomer Wysocki. Do not let the slow rhythm dissuade you.
