This movie is one of the best I have ever seen. True. I am very surprised seeing the average mark only 4.1. "Why it is so?", I wondered. I'll try to explain. Firstly, "Breakfast of champions" is'nt a comedy, but drama. How it can be a kind of comedy if the only one laugh is hysterical always and, besides that, the main hero tries to commit a suicide several times? Secondly, it's a story how an unhappy man - despite challenges of life - can find a path into his soul.
Okay, this movie isn't an entertainment though. Ir requires much more attention, cerebration than any comedy does. And it forces to think about your place in the world. That's it. And please do not sneer at my comment:)- it's only my opinion, of course:)
