I was surprisingly happy with this film. I wasn’t expecting it to be as funny as it was. It’s a great pick me up film. It won’t fail to cheer you up and make you laugh. James Franco, as usual, is fantastic at being weird and eccentric. He delivers some laugh out loud lines. It’s brilliant to watch. I really liked Bryan Cranston, this role really suited him. The relationship between him and Franco on screen was a really fun watch.
There are some really cool aspects to the story. One thing that really fascinated me was that the boyfriend didn’t have toilet paper in the house. The toilet cleaned your bum for you and had so many different cool functions. It was quite cool. I don’t know why that fascinated me so much but it did.
An excellent comedy film!
