Don't be fooled by the animated nature of this film. It is absolutely not kid friendly. After watching, I can absolutely tell you that this deserved all the Sundance praise. I laughed and cried, and both my child and adult sides were appealed to. I can't even believe how good this was. I was totally skeptical the first ten minutes, thinking it was going to be just another animated movie. No. Wrong. An 8-year-old Australian girl writes to some random American to ask where American babies come from. They become best friends and as it turns out he has Asperger's. I am entirely convinced that there is no way a live action movie could deal with some of these same issues in such an awesome way. Plus it's only an hour and a half long, and there's definitely no way a live action movie could deal with all these issues in ANY way in that short of a movie. SO GOOD.
I don't know if you could find two more fucked up characters. And they don't even know each other. Or so they are convinced. I had no idea what was going on for the first half of the movie. The second half I just kept hoping things would make sense. Not so much. And there are some messed up scenes in between. I can understand the widowed husband wanting to have some kind of affair with a 20-year-old to get his mind off things I suppose, but some of the things these two do are just insane. Vague, I realize, but I'd really rather not relive it.
This is a classic?
If you liked Forgetting Sarah Marshall you'll definitely like this one! The movie is based around the character Aldous Snow. The main character comes up with this idea to organize a comeback show at the Greek and once the deal goes through his boss gives him 3 days to get the rock star to the venue. As you can imagine, this turns out to be massively more difficult than one might think! Some of the things that happen are just absolutely ridiculous. Really, who keeps a giant dildo in their purse?
Despite the fact that Jonah Hill is hilarious, as is the character of Aldous Snow, Sean Combs, or P. Diddy, or whatever he is calling himself these days, absolutely steals the scenes he is in. Oh my god if he ever tried to mind fuck me I'd be completely scared out of my mind! Moral: don't ever smoke anything given to you by Sean Combs!
See it. Buy it. Watch it over and over.
What a crazy dude! So this guy, Albert Wagner, is like all sorts of a player and has like 3 wives and over 20 kids. No joke, not an exaggeration. Then one day when he's 50 he becomes a painter and now he's this really famous folk artist. There's paintings all over his house, which serves as kind of a store/museum. He says he talked to God and that's how he started painting. I'm not sure how much I agree with some of the opinions this guy expresses, but he's incredible either way. I don't usually do documentaries, but this one is worth watching just because this guy is so outrageous. Definitely makes me want to go see his house!
Why the two main characters in this movie are friends, I have no idea. I think maybe if this movie were made now instead of in the 60's the main girl who is supposed to be only worried about being popular would never ever hang out with someone who refers to himself as 'Mollymuck' and caws like a crow when he gets excited. I feel like that kind of teenage girl would, in reality, look down on that kind of guy and think he was a weirdo! Which he clearly is, given how the movie starts/ends. Apparently things were different in the 60's! Either way, it makes the movie just that much more interesting. There are definitely parts that are kind of ridiculous but the movie raised my spirits and made me laugh! Definitely no complaints about that. I had a good time with this one!
