One of those hipster indie films that starts off with a bang but is quickly overshadowed by its own attempts at cleverness.
The visual and physical humor is when the film is at its funniest, especially when it’s accompanied by the deadpan, monotone line delivery. Most of this film feels weird for the sake of being weird, and there’s nothing freaky or special enough to make it memorable.

The entire project feels as if it’s raunchy solely for the sake of being raunchy, and I wanted so much more.
