Jamie (Cera) is a boorish, insensitive American twentysomething traveling in Chile, who somehow manages to create chaos at every turn. He and his friends are planning on taking a road trip north to experience a legendary shamanistic hallucinogen called the San Pedro cactus. In a fit of drunkenness at a wild party, Jamie invites an eccentric woman -- a radical spirit named Crystal Fairy (Hoffmann) -- to come along. What is meant to be a devil-may-care journey becomes a battle of wills as Jamie finds himself locking horns with his new traveling companion. But on a remote, pristine beach at the edge of the desert, the magic brew is finally imbibed, and the true adventure begins. Written by
People who have rated this movie just don't get it. The movie was one of those funny charming movies that you just snuggle up next to and become a part of. People who have rated this movie as awful seem to maybe not understand it, maybe those people should keep to their cheap comedy American pie movies instead of getting involved in something they don't understand. Michael Cera did his usual wonderful job, in a wonderful film. I hope you do watch it, it's worth it. And I think this is one of my new favorite movies, I just want to watch it over and over again. And I suggest the people who have hated on it should do so as well, see if you find the beauty of it this time. I probably sound like some kind of high hippie right now but I'm just a normal dude that knows a good movie when I see one :)
