Slow movie...

By Chowda

Ed Norton plays twin brothers... one a college professor and the other a pothead marijuana grower. Richard Dreyfus and Susan Sarandon also have bit parts. This movie was really slow until about an hour into it and then it started getting interesting.

Ed Norton was killer. The script was killer until the end. It was like a slow, gradual slope, then walking into a wall of climax. I'd reco it though.

Leaves of Grass & Q&A w/Edward Norton & Tim Blake Nelson

There were many layers to this film that seemed ambitious for a comedy and, yet, the characters didn't seem to take themselves too seriously either, which made it comedic. It was more of a satire, imho. The lines in the movie hit you as either outstandingly clever or philosophically deep in such a rapid succession that it felt like a roller coaster ride- enjoyable, fun, scary but, overall, a lot to take in quickly without warning of the twists that the plot would take. One minute the characters are delivering a fantastically witty line and the next second, someone would be shot. Emotionally, it was a lot of work (as an audience member). Edward was convincing as two twin brothers in the same shot. It was pretty fascinating to watch but, sometimes, I felt it detracted slightly from the plot. I kept wondering how he did it, but that's just me. Most of the time, I'd forget. Q&A was great. Edward gave props to his Crowdrise people (I was one of them by the other cast members). Thumbs up!

Bold combination of drama and edgy comedy - brilliant

By Amicable

Ed Norton's performance as his own twin brother is unbelievable. He transforms himself each time he assumes the character of his pot-dealing, white trash alter-ego. For the first ten minutes it's hard to settle into the story, because the combined tone of drama and edgy comedy is unusual. You're not sure whether to laugh. But soon the movie's brilliance takes over and you're happy to go along for the ride, a most original ride at that.
