Did You Know?

Trivia

The main character's name is 'Adan' Kundle but it was originally 'Adam'. Producers had to change it midway through filming (not sure why) and all the references up to that point had to be dubbed over. It's covered by clever editing most places but can be noticed a couple of times. See more »

Crazy Credits

End credits play alongside a scene of Adan singing his way through his car dealership lines rather than speaking them as he did in the version of the scene earlier in the movie. See more »

its hard to review this movie may be because its not just a movie . its a piece of brilliant ideas put together in a beautiful though not perfect way. you just cant hate Bruce Greenwood in his part. though the film does not explain some main things around which the plot is based on but that just makes you admire it more, just adding the curiosity. not knowing until the credits rolled, i found to my surprise that my face was tired with a constant pleasant smile. this movie is not supposed to make you laugh like out loud like crazy but in a quiet and peaceful way. and it succeeds in doing that exactly.

THIS MIGHT NOT BE EVERYONE'S CUP OF TEA .. BUT IF YOU LIKE MOVIES LIKE I DO YOU WILL LOVE TO EXPERIENCE THIS MOVIE.
