"The Way Way Back" is a 2013 comedy-drama that was loosely inspired by the true-life experiences of Director Jim Rash. "The Way Way Back" premiered in theaters in August. All the names were changed in the movie.
The movie follows Duncan, a teenage boy, who has a hard time fitting in with his mother's new boyfriend and his new stepsister. The stepfather seems nice at first, but his attitude changes when his mother is not looking.
Feeling left out, Duncan's summer vacation changes when he is befriended by the manager at a water park.
The movie is good at accurately depicting the struggle stepchildren often face when they have a deceptive stepparent.
The relationship between Director Steve Rash and his real stepfather inspired the dialogue in the movie.
According to Rash, his stepfather really did call him "a three." The exchange between them as seen in the film is verbatim.
The movie's writer, Nat Faxon, stated that he only added the funny parts to the dialogue, according to the Knutsford Guardian.
