Storyline

An offbeat comedy in the style of "Bottle Rocket" and "After Hours". Wiley Roth finds a severed human finger in his kitchen one night. Understandably freaked out, Wiley and his best friend Mitch try to figure out the mystery of the finger, in a search across Los Angeles that brings them in contact with psychics, ineffectual police, crooked taxidermists, mysterious neighbors who might be on drugs, and a nine-fingered woman named Cheryl who might, improbably, end up being the girl of his dreams.

Good Qirky Film
26 May 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An offbeat comedy in the style of "Bottle Rocket" and "After Hours".

I had my trepidations about watching this film but I am very happy that I did go and see this film.

Why? In general the cast of this film is very talented especially Colin Hanks as Wiley Roth.

Addtionally the whole plot is just so different from the reprocessed crap that usually comes out of Hollywood.

Wiley Roth(Hanks) finds a severed human finger in his kitchen one night. Understandably freaked out, Wiley and his best friend Mitch try to figure out the mystery of the finger, in a search across Los Angeles that brings them in contact with psychics, ineffectual police, crooked taxidermists, mysterious neighbors who might be on drugs, and a nine-fingered woman named Cheryl who might, improbably, end up being the girl of his dreams.

I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to watch a generally funny and entertaining film.

A well deserved 9 out of 10
