User Reviews

 
Thought-provoking at times, but overall boring

The best way to sum up this film is that nothing really happens. There's plenty of drugs, sex, swearing and vomit, but it's a lot less exciting than all of that sounds. I went to this movie expecting it to be raucous, shocking and funny. Instead, it just kind of dragged, with some thought-provoking moments that made you think about real life problems, but plenty of parts that were just boring. I didn't really enjoy this film to be honest, and I don't recommend it.
