Did You Know?


A fake version of Manny was made to be used in most of the film, but Daniel Radcliffe insisted on being in every shot. The dummy was only used in a few shots where the stunts were too dangerous for Radcliffe, but Radcliffe would still throw or toss the dummy. See more »


At approximately 33:17, a man with what looks like a red plain shirt can be seen walking in the back ground right above the actors next to the standing tree in the middle of the screen. See more »

Weird doesn't mean funny
25 April 2017 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

Swiss Army Man is one of those movies that will divide everybody. You will or hate it or love it. I just hate it. And I'm normally not that picky. But when a movie doesn't make any sense at all then I get bored, in this case really bored. I'll give it a three star rating just for the fart jokes, because fart jokes are always funny. For the rest the story-line is just weird and most of the time ridiculous. But not ridiculous in a funny way. Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe didn't act bad or so, it's just the story that is bad. I honestly don't get why this movie gets such a high rating on here. I saw so much better movies with a lower score that sometimes I wonder how we can all be so different when it's about taste. I would not want to debate with somebody that liked this movie because that's just wasting my time and I already wasted enough time watching this nonsense.
