One of the few times I've been able to leave a full-price theater
thinking that it was totally worth it. I hadn't seen any previews or
trailers (watching TV on the web means that my ad exposure is *very*
skewed), so I had only the teensy summary on the movie theater website
to go by. Thus, I can't speak to others' criticisms of the movie not
living up to the hype.
It's not super-dark, and I don't think that it goes far enough to be considered truly satirical, particularly given the fact that some of the characters experience a type of redemption, but it's one of the most self-aware movies I've seen in ages.
I tried to think of more movies like TYFS to include for comparison, but am coming up short. Therefore, all I can say is that I'd love to see more movies that merge cynical/comedic/dramatic elements so thoroughly.
