Firstly....at any other time this movie would never ever (deservedly so) have been made ....to squander time & money on such a degenerate movie is beyond me.
Secondly....I may need some heavy duty therapy to erase any trace of this deviant movie from my memory - just the thought of it makes me puke in my mouth!!!
Lastly....what really frightens me is the thought that the writers, producers, director, actors & indeed the people here who have given this movie 5 stars - think the story is normal & are walking around without straight jackets on. I pray I never meet any of you scary people!!

I thought this movie was brilliant! My husband and I laughed the whole way through. The humor is quite gross, not for those who are squeamish. This character's struggle is heartbreaking, but it is told with so much humor and compassion. Definitely worth checking out!

I very much enjoy that all the normies are having a hard time with this film. I found it to be hilarious, heartwarming, musical?! and just overall pretty great but yeah, you can't take it very seriously.

I could barely go with interesting. I certainly would not recommend it for children. It is a very peculiar movie to say the least.

I picked this dvd up because it was a STAFF PICK! It makes me wonder about the library staff. The movie started out as an interesting idea but after about 40 minutes it got too gross for me. I can't believe the STAFF got 15 copies of this 'thing.'

This is one of those movies where you wish you could take back the hour and a half (or more) that you just wasted watching it. When it was over, my husband and I looked at each other, and said "What the heck did we just watch?" Yes, some parts of it were funny, but on the whole, the movie was just over-the-top odd.

Original concept, uneven execution. I think this might have worked better as a short film, to be honest, but if you like quirky movies with heart, then this one will interest you.

This is what the "heck" (not the word i want to use but you know what i mean) kind of movies. I was 8 minutes in i just wanted to turn it off. It took me two days to finish because i couldn't sit and watch all of it at once. Some of it wasn't what i expected and i was confused most of the time. in other words this is a movie that doesn't make since at all and i don't know how in the world it made it through production.

Sometimes absurd and sometimes deeply philosophical, Daniel Radcliffe delivers a completely un-Harry-Potter-like performance. This is a very odd movie that is definitely not for everyone, but is 100% original from beginning to end.

Radcliffe is amazing as a corpse, brought back to life by the imagination of Paul Dano, a ship-wrecked man who finds Radcliffe washed up on the beach of his tiny desert island. Radcliffe returns the favor by enabling Dano to leave the island and return home. The police arrive and put Radcliffe into a body bag, which I thought was the right place to end the movie. However, the director preferred to have Dano hi-jack the body and take it down to the beach, where the characters have a sentimental discussion of how people would all be better off if they didn't feel they had to hide stuff from each other. Despite the hokey ending, I give it four stars.

Well, I'll give it this much: It's original if nothing else.
The performances and cinematography are both really good, with enough WTF moments to rattle even the most jaded viewer.
Plus: The ending is well worth the time getting there.
