Horrible tripe
14 March 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Watching this movie last night on late night television was a painful experience as a whole and simply made me angry. I have to agree with other reviewers that this movie was a blatant rip off of other poorly constructed "indie" films of the mid-nineties, such as Empire Records, Reality Bites and Mallrats. This boring, cliché-filled disposable piece of garbage should have been made 15 years ago and forgotten just as easily as its predecessors. This movie is clearly the writer's hipster wet dream of a life he wishes he could live: a sub-par musician who works at a café that only sells cereal (?), his ultra-cool artist girlfriend Zoey Deschanel (who must have owed a favour to the makers of this terrible, terrible thing), and supporting stoner characters who have nothing better to do than hang out and talk about cereal. So lame, so lame. There are so many cringe inducing lines and scenes it would take a novel to fully describe, but here's one of my personal favourites: "The Velvet Underground were before my time but I sure as hell know who they are." The main character performs a song at the end of the movie called "The Freakies" in which the lyrics are based on his love of cereal and how it contributes to his non-conformist/rocking against the establishment attitude. Barf! Avoid this movie at all costs.
