If you have problem sleeping, this film will fix it. After watching it for 15 min will will be sleeping like a baby. Boring, pretentious, depressing and not funny at all. The sound is perhaps the best thing about it as well as the acting, which unfortunately gets wasted as you do not feel even the slightest bit of sympathy, let alone to identify, with the main characters. The secondary characters, such as his boss, are simply repetitive stereotypes which one has already seen many, many times before on the screen. In fact this film is so repetitive, that you will be glad it only lasts 90 something minutes. I have red the great reviews about it and it is as if I went to see a different film. Do yourselves a favor, ignore the critics and give it a miss.
