Justin Cobb is 17 and sucks his thumb. When his 'holistic orthodontist' (hysterically, Keanu Reeves) urges him to invoke his 'power animal' he conjures a faun. After he starts taking Ritalin to cope with his 'Attention Deficiency Syndrome' Justin becomes a cocaine-tongued debate team whizz - but is he any happier? Pitch perfect performances from Vincent D'Onofrio, Tilda Swinton and Vince Vaughn make this a deadpan comedy delight.
