Movie Summary

Director:
Paul Weiland
Released:
2006
Rating:
PG-13
12 year-old Bernie is ignored by his own family. His obsessive compulsive father Manny (EDDIE MARSAN) is concerned about the giant supermarket opening opposite his grocery shop, and his mother Esther (HELENA BONHAM CARTER) is too busy worrying about Manny and Alvie, Bernie's mischievous older brother. With his upcoming Bar Mitzvah, however, Bernie believes he can finally gain the attention he deserves. He begins to plan the perfect ceremony and reception, where everyone assembled will acknowledge his new status as a man. Unfortunately for Bernie, things do not quite go according to plan. It's the summer of '66 and the country's soccer team makes it to the World Cup Final - set for the very same day. With England caught up in the games, Bernie is in danger of being overlooked again on his big day . Based on the real life experience of the director, Paul Weiland, "Sixty Six" is a charming comedy with heart-warming qualities reminiscent of "Billy Elliot" and "Love Actually."moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 50

    The New York Times Jeannette Catsoulis

    Charts a sentimental struggle toward manhood with period-appropriate charm.

  • 50

    Variety

    While mazel tovs are due for efficient playing and execution, predictable script seldom scores big laughs.

  • 40

    Los Angeles Times

    Instead of depicting a boy's first steps toward manhood -- ceremony aside -- it turns into an uninvolving portrait of self-absorption.
