Justin Longs best

One of Justin Longs best performances! The start of the movie shows Justin in his class (he's the professor) a CREATIVE writing class one of his students talks about a sexual experience no big deal they're in their 20s they're far from kids. This being said he's called to the office to discuss this issue and how a student found it "triggering" this is an issue with kids these days they find the simplest things "triggering" basically ends with the student complaining saying how it brought tragic evens up for her because Justin "pressures" the other student to talk about it. Being a victim myself this has happened to me and it's never "triggered" me. That being said BEST MOVIE EVER! it touches family values and brings a "broken" family together during the worst time ever loosing a loved one. I highly recommend it unless you're easily a cry baby and get "triggered" over every day life! RAISE YOUR KIDS RIGHT PEOPLE DONT RAISE EM TO BE P****S!
