This movie was TERRIBLE!, 11 February 2009
Author: hamsterkitten from Iowa

Lucky Cucumber is a local "celebrity" who is known for many things, such as being "a man who would set another man on fire for a pizza," having had over 100 jobs and living in a cave. A couple of local filmmakers decide to take a government grant they were given and make a film about Lucky and his life. What ensues leads you deep into the world of a bizarre, dimwitted guy who lives with his cranky grandpa and awkwardly goes through life one weird day at a time.

The theory behind The Life of Lucky Cucumber seemed like a good idea. A quirky, off the wall comedy that will throw unexpected scenarios and dialogue at you from one minute to the next. Unfortunately, the follow through did not pan out as the writing was not really that funny. The acting left a little to be desired, where the movie itself left a LOT to be desired. And I'm all for actors writing scripts, but think these guys needed to stick to their day jobs.
