The key to happiness might not be found in a dirty old bathtub in Los Angeles, but 7 Stages is still guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
The outlandishness proffered by this comedy is of such a strident sort that any possible laughs quickly turn to eye-rolling groans.
A film with a great idea on paper that never truly comes to fruition, starting off silly but slowly rolling off the tracks before getting completely lost by the end.
Perhaps the lure of the Storsh may be mystifying even as Paul and Claire start to succumb to it themselves, but the draw of Seven Stages is quite strong.
In any case, "Seven Stages..." is a bonkers, bat shit insane movie, but a funny one. If you're in the mood to experiment with an unconventional, sometimes loony comedy, I recommend it.
Those for whom it hits the spot are likely to return to it again and again. You certainly won't find much else in the same vein.
The comedy largely works, though you shouldn't be surprised to find yourself exhausted by the experience once the credits roll.
Caldinelli's film invites viewers to count the comedy cameos, drink the Kool-Aid and finally find the funny side of their cultic centre. Not everyone will be converted - but those that are may well see the light at the end of the drain.
7 Stages is without a doubt the best comedy-perhaps even the best film-to ever be made about a cult.
The comedy flickers between playful and obscene, and the story bounces back and forth between strange and absolutely screwed up. It's a reasonable place for this movie to be, and even with it's faults, it's quite hilarious.
It's The Loved One for millennials, a film that forces us to laugh at something we'd rather not even acknowledge. Fortunately, the journey is well worth the price of admission.
But more often than not, Seven Stages simply fails to navigate the turn from freaky to funny.
