One of the best films of the year, it definitely left me wanting more. I would love a sequel just to revisit these awesome characters and locations. Day 1 buy for me, I can't wait to watch it again and again.
@Graham1138: Your cinema's ticket sells projection for the film was probably too low for consideration. At least that's the way it worked when they actually used physical film canisters. I'm honestly not sure how the films are distributed these days, when so many cinemas have gone all digital.
Saw this movie in preview and loved it, told all my friends. Will probably see it again theatrically and purchase as well. Love that it's a comedy that appeals across generations, so rare these days, and proves it can be done! Like a breath of fresh air!!! Liked the creative casting. Cast was great. Janney was hysterical.
Fox will also be releasing "The Way, Way Back" on Blu-ray in the UK.
Thanks be to the Blu-ray Gods that "The Way, Way Back" is also a Fox title in the UK !
Had "The Way, Way Back" been controlled by Disney, Paramount or Sony in the United Kingdom, then owing to the disgraceful practices of the clueless idiots entrusted with managing the affairs of those companies in the UK, the film would almost certainly have never seen the light of day on Blu-ray in Europe's largest Home Video market.
