When the chaotically misfortunate Jenkins and the monotonously lucky Lou run into each other one morning, they find a thrilling and fulfilling change of pace as they hurtle down the hills of San Francisco in an ice cream cart.
A nerdy man goes on a blind date to a restaurant. The place is great and the girl is beautiful. If only the two sides of his brain (seen here as two tiny creatures running the brain's command center) could work together for once.
While watering plants, a man slips on a banana peel and falls from the rooftop of a tall building. As he's falling to his death, blackbirds appear and play him a movie reel that recapitulates his life, which makes him realize something.
I love the expressions of the little boy. He is full of hope and creativity and is cut off at the pass each time he expresses himself. His father is a worker. He goes in at the same time and comes home at the same time each day. He frowns at his son's childishness in the face of prescriptive learning. He pulls him away from experiences that he sees as trivial. A lot is said in a short period of time here.
