Well acted, well plotted, and with a sweet twist. I was thoroughly caught up in this film although it will, admittedly, not be to everybody's taste.
Stupid, Stupid, Stupid..... Don't waste your time, trust me... You will be sorely disappointed!!!!
Sundance's description gives absolutely no indication as to what this film is. The lead actor appears to have studied under Jerry Lewis. The 'expert' referred to in the description is a bumbling loser who hasn't the vaguest idea what he's doing and we're supposed to find the whole situation funny. The people who gave this film a favorable rating are clearly involved in its promotion.
I really enjoyed the ride. Excellent use of few locations (hotel, motel, diner). Beautiful progression and quirkily constructed. This is pretty much the content I'm looking for, compare to what populates other streaming services.
