This dark comedy makes a few smart observations about the lengths people will go to snag the American Dream, but its satiric edge gets dulled rather quickly.

The film feels like it's over long before the credits roll-or perhaps that's just wishful thinking.

This dark comedy's clever premise is too thin to sustain its feature-length running time.

A fresh riff on "be careful what you wish for" fables.
