Storyline

Jerry (Ryan Reynolds) is that chipper guy clocking the nine-to-five at a bathtub factory, with the offbeat charm of anyone who could use a few friends. With the help of his court-appointed psychiatrist, he pursues his office crush (Gemma Arterton). However, the relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn after she stands him up for a date. Guided by his evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog, Jerry must decide whether to keep striving for normalcy, or indulge in a much more sinister path. Written by Lionsgate

"A dark comedy?"
9 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Dark comedy is not an easy genre but it seems they did a good job with this movie.

The plot was also awesome, the visuals are beautiful to look at and there seems to be a lot of attention paid to detail. One aspect that I really loved is that almost the entire movie is seen from Jerry's perspective. When he takes pills (to control his delusions), we see the ugly and sad state of his life. When he goes off his meds and starts getting crazier, everything looks chipper and upbeat.

Good thing is they can do a mini series and i am sure it will be very good with this plot and the cast.

The bad thing is they couldn't fill the movie with enough emotions and they left it skin-deep.

I wish they will make a mini series with this, the plot was seriously good it can't be a waste.
