what was this i just saw?
30 May 2009 | by (Wyoming, USA) – See all my reviews

i watched this movie yesterday because i saw that it had a rating of over 8 points here on IMDb and because it was categorized as comedy/romance/sci fi. both factors combined is usually a mixture that can not fail my taste. my mistake though was that i did not notice that only 34 people rated it so far, but i just noticed that today before i started writing this review.

OK, let's sedate this without revealing too much.

to my surprise this started off as a low-cost movie in a rather amateurish lab environment. the acting did not start off as bad as i expected, but the main protagonists felt somewhat hateable from the very beginning. anyway, i didn't want to fall into judgement too soon and watched it through the end before making my mind up.

the story of a guy who finds the formula for successful cryogenics in a lab that has like $65 dollars of equipment in it, who gets oppressed by his tyrannic wife, riduculed by his wheelchaired and completely soul-less assistant, and falls in love with a 14 year old girl he barely knows and thereby decides to freeze himself in a fridge until she's his age, can only described as "odd".

there are some alight ideas in there, which could have worked as an alright movie if done with a much better script. the final product does not really qualify as a comedy and even less as a scifi/romantic comedy. there is really nothing funny about it. also there is nothing in it that would even remotely pass as romantic. the characters are just sad, very sad. every single one of them and the whole plot line is just tragic. you don't manage to get any feelings for the characters, neither good or bad. it is more like observing the movie than feeling some kind of connection to the protagonist.

since the storyline is so out-of-this world they should have used this material and make 90% of all scenes completely over-the-top to give it the needed comedic spin, that this movie is so clearly missing.

this wasn't a terribly agonizing experience, since it didn't offend me in any way, but it was extremely boring and very misleading. i was expecting to get some good laughs out of it, or at least some chuckles, but as already stated, this is not a comedy.
