Guys its a moving fictional motion picture.
13 February 2015 | by amformalSee all my reviews

Uhuh, I saw these adverse reactions. But, you need to really get the spirit of the production to appreciate the lightness in the script. You should thank the heavens that somebody like DOR did this movie, and not some pseudo psycho fictional extraterrestrial stuff.

In its direction and design, it is well in the top 10% of percentage of movies made in the last 12 months, and that is considering its so much harder to pull of a comedy than psycho thriller about of a marauding pedophile.

Its a comedy. Unbelievably spontaneous scripting, laughs from the word go and the hangover is with you all through the next week or more. If you liked Silver Linings Playbook then you will like this.

Again, the 4.5 rating is a lot unfair and non-representative. Imagine its a 7.5 rating, and watch it and you will know the rating was evil. Or look for the rating after you've watched, even though thats a lot difficult these days. If you are light hearted person you will love it, if not you will become one after you watch this.

Also, do you recognize the movie was stigmatized and denied a release through some very dystopian back staging by influential members of the congress and entity in general? Much like, Kill The Messenger by CIA.

So, its more symbolic about free speech and expression than anything you will do this year, probably.
