Watchable! Yuppies meet their Cosmic Match in Darkly Funny Film
26 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Three 30-something buddies trying to make it in the big city decide on a whim to visit a gypsy fortune-teller; how each man reacts to hearing his "fate" is the plot of this charming dark comedy. From the moment they exit the gypsy's lair, things spin out of control for the trio, especially for a yuppie dad (Arrested Development's Tony Hale in a great role) as he becomes obsessed with the security of his young son.

I don't recall laughing out loud at so many lines in a movie in a long time. The writing is excellent, the actors -- even the minor ones -- do justice to the script, nicely filling out archetypes -- and the film asks some profound questions while managing to entertain. And while the movie boasts its share of stock indie-film characters -- a street tough who happens to be a little person, memorably played by Peter Dinklage ("The Station Agent") and a mentally challenged hillbilly (Shannon Parr) with incestuous leanings -- these touches are far from self- conscious. The film reflects a mainstream sensibility and asks universal questions. See it!
