Gradually people notice the heat index is rising, and that all life on Earth is at risk, for a hoard of alien dinosaurs want to take over; until a soldier and a ex-model step in to take back planet Earth.
The film is about a boy who locks himself in the bathroom to work out math equations on the shower wall. The boy has obsessive compulsive parents. The boy is obsessed with a cheerleader named Lacy, who lives across the street from. Written by
Strange satire that fails to be funny or entertaining.
This is a satire that is usually more strange than entertaining. The
idea had potential, and the actors have talent, but sadly it fails to
deliver. The main character, Hal, is a kid with OCD who is afraid to
leave the bathroom. Hal is played by Justin Long, who seems to be doing
a bad impression of Milton Waddams from Office Space (one of my
favorite movies). Unfortunately Hal is not half as funny Milton. Hal's
father is played by Stephen Root, who played Milton in Office Space.
Stephen takes his role seriously, and gives a good performance, but
he's not funny - he's serious. Wendie Malick also plays her role well,
but again in a serious way. The only funny character in this movie is
the eccentric grandmother. The theme is there - people with misplaced
values taking life too seriously and making themselves miserable. But
it's just not entertaining.. It's weird. Basically the movie has an
identity crisis. Sometimes it tries to be funny, and sometimes it tries
to be serious, but overall it fails at both.
