Transamerica is a highly overrated movie. This film is good for it's Good Direction and It's good acting, but suffers from lazy writing and slow pacing. Felicity Huffman is good and convincing as a woman(in real life), playing a man becoming a woman. Kevin Zegers is always good as the son she didn't know she had. The movie has many pointless scenes that leave questions to be answered, thus making the movie un-enjoyable and causes the bordem to start very early on. The acting alone, is the only reason that anyone should see this movie.

But then Bree gets an unexpected phone call from Toby (Kevin Zegers), an 18-year-old who claims to be Stanley's son; in a move that …
