Hank, stranded on a deserted island and about to kill himself, notices a corpse washed up on the beach. He befriends it, naming it Manny, only to discover that his new friend can talk and has a myriad of supernatural abilities...which may help him get home.Written by
MAGICAL, would be the one word I'd choose to describe this film. However, it is so much more. It's smart, but disguises itself as dumb or silly at times. A wonderful commentary on human life that makes you laugh, gasp, and truly ponder.
It brings up something that everyone can relate to, every human. However, serious the film may get, it's extremely self aware, and never get's too deep without being able to take a few steps back and laugh at itself.
The fun and playfulness of Steven Spielberg's Hook, mashed together with Cast Away and Fight Club.
One of the most fun roller-coaster rides I've had in a while at the theater. Enjoy it on the big screen.
