    Damn was I a fool.  For something like 15 years now I’ve wrote this film off and misjudged it.  It may not be as full of belly laughs as other Wes Anderson productions, but it sure has a plethora of heart.  Margot has mine. ❤️
    Nothing better than the feeling of fulfillment after connecting with something you loathed for years.  Cheers to time, shifted perspectives, and second chances!  Fits in well with themes of the film too, I’d say.

    Kevin Gilmartin Jr. : They took the water out of the pool because I'm not a good swimmer. I'm bad at sports and, at school, nobody wants me on their team.

    Ned Merrill : Well, it's a lot better that way, you take it from me. At first you think it's the end of the world because you're not on the team. Till you realize...

    Kevin Gilmartin Jr. : Realize what?
