This movie is amazing! It is so straightforwardly endearing! It follows a young man through a few weeks where everything in his life goes to hell. The beauty of the film though, is that it doesn't conform to the starsky-and-hutch, euro-trip kind of crappy comedy that Hollywood has been force-feeding us lately. This is a movie that actually deserved to be made, and one that should get a lot more credit than it has been. Rather than relying on cheesy one-liners, this is a real character study, a glimpse into a life you could actually see someone leading. Put it this way, if you find the royal Tannenbaum's, i <3 huckabees, and scrubs entertaining, you will appreciate this movie. If you don't, then your opinion doesn't matter anyway ;).
