Storyline

Jerry (Ryan Reynolds) is that chipper guy clocking the nine-to-five at a bathtub factory, with the offbeat charm of anyone who could use a few friends. With the help of his court-appointed psychiatrist, he pursues his office crush (Gemma Arterton). However, the relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn after she stands him up for a date. Guided by his evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog, Jerry must decide whether to keep striving for normalcy, or indulge in a much more sinister path. Written by Lionsgate

Trivia

Director Marjane Satrapi was initially going to hire voice actors for the animals' voices, however Ryan Reynolds convinced her that he should do them as they are voices that his character hears in his head, and therefore should be different variations of his voice. He convinced her by sending her recordings of his voice, tailored specifically for each of the animals. See more »

Goofs

I can hear them too
31 December 2014 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Well only those in the movie that is of course. Not reading about them or the movie as is my usual procedure, for better or worse, before watching a movie, proved good for this one. To say this was a surprise would be an understatement, even though we got told that the movie was received very well in other cities where the Festival went before coming to our town. A promise kept in that case.

We have a weird sense of humor and it's really dark. You might not like that sort of "comedy", but if you do, you will cherish and love this. There is no denying that this is unique and the character (our main protagonist), is somewhat likable ... which is key to the movie. But even if you don't like him (ever/from the start), the movie offers a lot for you to enjoy
