It had it's funny parts, but it was just so full of ...well..L.A. My favorite bit was the "it wasn't until the water started pouring in the trunk that I realized my beloved wife had driven the car into the ocean" It's alright ^_^
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I cannot believe I haven't seen it before, it definitely became my fav of all the Kaurism√§ki brothers' movies I've seen. And I'm not just saying that because of the brilliant David Tennant (can he do anything wrong? I don't think so!).
I didn't really like the plot much - I found his wife very unsympathetic, it seemed like she was using him. But this was made up for by the ever-so-sexy David Tennant and his Scottish accent, and that awesome scene with him and Johnny Depp - my two favourite men in the same frame!
Charming comedy about a young funeral director who follows his dream girl to LA with Johnny Depp serving as his spiritual guide. Hijinks ensue. Vincent Gallo is very entertaining in a complete 180 from his Buffalo 66 performance as a laid back hipster whose every other word is "yo."
