Storyline

From a psychiatric ward, tutor & proofreader Gaby Winters elaborately recounts an evening spent babysitting a 16 year old girl--an evening that results in the girl's disappearance. While Gaby's story is recorded to video, she tells of her urgent attempts to relocate the missing teen before her parents return home. Gaby's search is set to a tapestry of snaking subplots: the unlikely spy hunting down an envelope, the eloping girl he exploits, her doting mother, the military husband, his pious mistress, an abducted woman, and the ailing fiancé wandering around in a karate gi bent on beating a man he mostly-believes is banging his girl. Gaby's story--infused with anarchy--will climax memorably, or so she intends. Written by Anonymous

acquired taste that's really funny...
30 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

Morrison performed her erratic character believably and the supporting cast jumped right to her level. Sure, the movie seems to enjoy chaos. And sure, you feel a certain confusion along the way. But I watched this movie twice, and the second viewing was infinitely better. I let the emotions, humor flow over me. And besides, the story is about psychology and someone who wants to tell a good story -- who happens to be pretty messed up. I guess the ideas behind the movie, plus how surprising the characters behave, made it worth it for me. I have to admit I only watched this movie as an obsessive "House" fan but I enjoyed it much more than I anticipated.

This film may not be for everyone, but if you like indie pictures that are specific, kinda difficult, but really freaking funny, with a great cast and a head trip, I would recommend it.
