Thumbsucker (2005)

Teenager Justin Cobb (Lou Taylor Pucci) has an embarrassing secret: He still sucks his thumb. Berated by his father (Vincent D'Onofrio) for the childish habit and unable to confide in anyone, Justin lets his loopy orthodontist (Keanu Reeves) try hypnosis. It works almost too well; before long, Justin needs another crutch to help keep his angst at bay. Vince Vaughn and Tilda Swinton co-star in director Mike Mills's 2005 Sundance entry.
My Two Cents: After a while these boring characters just sounded like adults on a Charlie Brown cartoon... wah wahhhh wahhh wah

NetFlix Rank: Didn't Like It
IMDB Rank: 4/10


Kevin's Two Cents: Funny and sincere. Manages to look at suburban life without a sneer unlike many similar movies. Good stuff.

NetFlix Rank: Really Liked It
