Storyline

Frank, an opportunistic insurance lawyer, thinks he's in for the time of his life when he goes out on the town to celebrate an upcoming promotion with his co-worker, Jeff. But their night takes a turn for the bizarre when Frank is dosed with a hallucinogen that completely alters his perception of the world, taking him on a psychedelic quest through board meetings, nightclubs, shootouts, and alternate dimensions. As Frank ping-pongs between reality and fantasy, he finds himself on a mission to find a missing girl, himself - and his wallet.

Fun and Trippy
19 January 2020 | by jraychretienSee all my reviews

This is good intellectual fun trip of a movie. Anyone who has felt the effects of time while tripping on a hallucinogenic will understand, in a small way, what Justin Longs character goes through. The concept of time feels tactile. It's a abstract concept but it makes more sense to those who have experience it. It's fun but time and space jump around a bit so you have to pay attention. If you enjoy something like " I Heart Huckabee's" then you will probably enjoy this film. Mr. Long does a great job as the lead. His character is believable and in the end, very likable. I enjoyed the ride from this creative concept. Trippy. :)
