Fans of Finkleman will enjoy it.

Most of Ken Finkleman's work has an acquired taste. You have to like his will for artistic creativity and also understand his satiric outlook. The acting is great, though I wish Mark Farrell was in it. But the one thing that sets this apart from the regular Newsroom series is that he goes further to play with satire and reality, this time using his surrealist approach. This is what I'd say to be the best part of the movie, though others who do not accept Ken Finkleman's art over his satiric comedy may be bothered by it. Basically, if you just like the Newsroom series and probably haven't heard of anything else Ken Finkleman has done, you might not like this one. It's not the Newsroom, but just as the title says, it's an escape from it. Others who appreciate Finkleman's body of work, and would probably pay to see him direct a jean commercial if he ever did one (ya right), it is they who would get the most from this.
