Quotes

Sweet Stephan: So, he-hey, do you know why Philly robbed the porno store or not?
Mr. Jack: The answer is yes. And if you gave it some thought, you'd know too.
Sweet Stephan: I don't like thinking, you just tell me.
Mr. Jack: The answer is elementary my dear Stephen. Evil, begets evil.
Sweet Stephan: And what the fuck is that supposed to mean?
Mr. Jack: It means, that there is a logical, and natural force in the world. It preserves things spherically. Everything that goes around comes around. What goes up, must come down. You with me?

Well worth the watch
25 December 2010 | by mejeff2See all my reviews

I, like many others, was drawn to this movie because Zach Galifianakis was on the cover. It was not at all what I expected it to be, but I was not disappointed in the slightest.

Very interesting, thought provoking, and the dialogue and story are good. Also worth mentioning, the acting was excellent.

Zach is not a major part of this movie, so if you're in the mood for a movie that he is more involved in, skip this one and come back to it later(but don't disregard it).

Don't be afraid to give it a shot due to the bad reviews, but don't expect to fall out of your seat laughing either.
