Odd and mysterious. Very bizarre. I didn't quite know what to make of it, but I liked it. (First and only viewing - 4/28/2013)

odd and surreal, one of the better post swingers film for its lead. full of oddball characters and strange plot developments.

A quirky dark comedy that has slightly sinister fun with a bunch of familiar memes from SF and suspense thrillers. Well written; well acted; and well made.

A quirky comedy-thriller with decidedly noir feel. It sounds like a bizarre combination but it works. Unfortunately the movie tries to be a bit too clever, and some the story's potential doesn't quite materialize. It could have been much more, but settles for a slight and easily forgettable comedy.

Interesting ride to an uninteresting destination.

Great cast, but an okay movie, not as good as Rotten Tomatoes critics say it is. Definitely not a 71%!

Low budget comedy that works. I didn't know Baker was another Roswell.

Surreal characters populate an ever twisting world of deepening mystery. The plot rivals Donnie Darko for its style and only partly explained scenes of larger than life characters with their own agendas. A movie to watch and discuss with friends over just what things meant and just how reliable a witness was the camera.

I'm just a cowboy, John. Pure and simple.

Good cast and interesting story. I can understand why it didn't go mainstream, but everyone should give this flick a watch.

Found this in the sci-fi section of the video store but wouldn't have given it that category myself... compelling enough to make you keep watching but by the end you wondered whether it was worth it.

Nothing all that interesting happens and it's all left too up in the air at the end.

Never watched a movie with a title more fitting ^^ ...

It all is a great, big, colourful nothing. Filled with a good cast and a script, that makes you sense almost coenesque qualities - but in the end turns out to be completely pointless.
You start to wonder what the great finale will be like, the big twist, the wow-ending - and then, the credits start rolling.
But anyway, it did entertain well.

PS: Joey Lauren Adams sure has got a _weird_ voice, and a very strange smile too - is she an alien or anything?
