Movie goes in all different directions
10 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

Call me abnormal, but a movie based around families loved ones all dying in random car crashes, is nothing I can digest as a comedy. This movie seemed like it was going for a Indie feel, but didn't have any real edge to it. It was a bunch of tragedies after another, but they weren't really funny or ironic. Even the moments that were supposed to be emotional, were awkward or set up poorly. This movie just couldn't pull things together to connect emotionally with the viewer. That said, one thing this movie did do a good job at was with making the set look like things from the 80s. It looked like it could have been the set from E.T..
