The Way, Way Back is a sunny wonder, writes Kurt Loder, a movie made for virtual pocket change (less than $5-million) that effortlessly out-classes such floundering box-office behemoths as The Lone Ranger and White House Down. The script, by actors Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, who also directed (and gave themselves a pair of funny supporting roles as well), is a feast for the lively cast, which includes Sam Rockwell and Steve Carrel, and you can feel them reveling in it. Soon you are, too.
