It is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby's arrival
impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully
unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative seven-year-old named Tim. With
a sly, heart filled message about the importance of family, it is an
authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.  Rated PG, 97 Minutes.
