Well it's definitely weird..
29 June 2018 | by adonis98-743-186503See all my reviews

Just after the end of the Vietnam War and in the midst of the American bicentennial celebrations of 1976, runaway Kit and his girlfriend Alice hitchhike their way along the east coast of Canada. Weirdos doesn't offer anything to viewers except perhaps an 85 minute film of pure boredom and something that the title foreshadows of what is meant to truly come. I didn't buy on any of the perfomances, the story was slow paced and just painfully bland and boring and the overall film doesn't say something important or even has characters that you can truly care for whatever happens to them in life. Definitely a movie with little in front and behind the cameras. (0/10)
