A little more fast forward and it would be perfect.
This film opens with a SNAP! Love the crazy use of the old car cassette player to rewind and fast forward us through the thoughts in Sunny Holiday's otherwise empty head. Jon Gries, who plays Sunny, is excellent.
However, the movie slows down a bit from there. Loved the singing, the one night stands, the poetry readings that are voice over, but some of the chit chat that happens in the long in betweens, though funny at times, looses you. Cut cut cut.
The camera work is a little static and dull, though the set design, wardrobe and editing are exciting. Just when you were bored or squirming in your seat, Sunny hits the rewind button and brings you back to life.
The movie gets fun in the end when Sunny meets up with his equally dysfunctional brothers, played by Anthony Edwards and Rick Oberton.
Go see if for the dirty jokes and go see it for the technology. Great use of the new 24p hi def medium.
