A motorcycle stunt rider turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his lover and their newborn child, a decision that puts him on a collision course with an ambitious rookie cop navigating a department ruled by a corrupt detective.
In this comedy, Lars Lindstrom is an awkwardly shy young man in a small northern town who finally brings home the girl of his dreams to his brother and sister-in-law's home. The only problem is that she's not real - she's a sex doll Lars ordered off the Internet. But sex is not what Lars has in mind, but rather a deep, meaningful relationship. His sister-in-law is worried for him, his brother thinks he's nuts, but eventually the entire town goes along with his delusion in support of this sweet natured boy that they've always loved.Written by
I didn't like this movie. The characters are all well written and the music is very enchanting, but I really really couldn't get into it. This movie just feels too subdued. They really could have run wild with this premise but instead they turned it into a 2hr time waster. I'm sure many people will enjoy this film, but I most definitely did not, and will not recommend it to anybody. I honestly have no idea how this film was nominated for an Oscar,unless it was for the music, which is vaguely whimsical but always charming. In my opinion there are far better films which touch on mental illness such as Defendor or Girl Interrupted.
