Small-town stoner Mike Howell (Jesse Eisenberg) spends most of his time getting high and writing a graphic novel about a superhero monkey. What Mike doesn't know is that he was trained by the CIA to be a lethal killing machine. When the agency targets him for termination, his former handler activates his latent skills, turning the mild-mannered slacker into a deadly weapon. Now, the utterly surprised Mike must use his newfound abilities to save himself and his girlfriend from getting wasted by the failed test subjects that are sent after him by the CIA.Written by

Where do you want to begin?
[thinking, seeing flashbacks]
Dustpan. Spoon. Noodles. Bear. Frying pan. Fire. Apollo Ape. "Marry Me."Where did it all begin?
Okay, it started three days ago, in the town of Liman, West Virginia. It's where I lived with my girlfriend, Phoebe. She is the only good thing that's ever happened to me. I honestly cannot even remember my life before her. We were the perfect fucked-up couple. She was perfect, and I was the fuck-up. And we were really, really happy....

Not worth the time.
I don't give movies bad reviews often. I am the kind of guy who enjoys movies for what they are, and can usually find something to enjoy even in less than great movies. I don't require some deeper meaning in my movies, or even a stellar plot.
That said, I have no idea how this movie is carrying a 6+ on here. This movie is truly bad. It isn't the worst movie of all time...but it is bad. Bad. It isn't funny. The action isn't good. The acting isn't good. The special effects are beyond bad. The plot is it's one redeeming feature, and it just isn't very good either.
Seriously. If you are like me and check movies on here to see whether it is worth it or not to sit down and watch, either avoid this or go in knowing it is a 4 at best, and that is being generous. Just a bad bad movie.
