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 »

A word from any sponsor would be better than this awful movie
1 November 2013 | by Kathleen828See all my reviews

I kept waiting for this movie to have a point, a plot or a personality. It never did.

Characters appear out of nowhere, no backstory is ever explained, the few motivations supplied are not sufficiently fleshed out enough to make us care about the characters, and the ending is magic realism in spades.

Adan Kundle, the CEO of an advertising company, can only speak in advertising slogans. So he sometimes appears as an "idiot savant" along the lines of Peter Sellers in Being There, but without the brilliant writing which gave that movie its heart.

After the first hour I kept watching because I had already wasted that much time and I hoped for some resolution at the end. It never came, and I ended up wasting all the time I spent watching it.

Do yourself a favor and don't waste YOUR time as I did.
