Oh it's you.
Yes, I'm doing primal gesticulating.
I thought someone was getting ax murdered.
The only thing getting murdered are my anxieties, tensions and fears. Speaking figuratively of course. I'm against violence of any kind.

I had to write a review for this movie because I read some reviews on this site before I watched it and was really debating on whether I should even see it, but my girlfriend insisted. I thought from other people's reviews that this movie was going to SUCK.
However it didn't. Far from it, I actually found myself laughing the entire movie. Not a single actor, line or scene disappointed me. Yes there was some awkward moments and characters, but hell, what's a comedy without that? It didn't censor itself but rather embraced it's originality; and that's why I think I enjoyed it so much. So to anybody reading these reviews that are saying it's not funny, don't listen to them, give it a chance and I doubt you'll be disappointed. I sure as hell wasn't.
And to any male readers discouraged by the fact that there is a male nudist in the movie, you can breathe easy- it's a prosthetic.
All in all I'll give this movie a 9 because it's funny, original, kind of weird, and yet totally awesome.
