This movie has it's moments, but there are too few of them to make it a worthwhile film. It's loaded with attempts at dark humor, but most of it is just disturbing not funny.
If you think Sam Rockwell shooting his girlfriend in the stomach and leaving her to die, and then later joking that he's not such a bad guy because he didn't shoot her in the head and he called an ambulance is funny, then this film may be for you, because that's the "humor" typical of this film.

I really enjoyed this movie because I like movies with dark and quirky humor. This is a fast-paced well written move with a great cast. The audience cheered, laughed, and was surprised at several points in the film--which is always a good sign.

I gave this movie time to redeem itself. Over an hour I sat there wondering what the critics were writing about. This movie had no plot. Just segments not even pieced together. Blood and violence abound with no purpose. The preview was edited to show a fun quirky storyline. Sadly the movie didn't. Not even worth a Red Box visit.

This is one fun movie to sit through. Sam Rockwell is his usual off-the-wall psycho self. He really drives the movie. Colin Farrell plays a wimpy screenwriter in this film and Sam Rockwell his muse. Throw in Christopher Walken, a natural-born-psycho if ever there was one, and you get the makings of what turns out to be an unpredictable, ballsy, loosely scripted serial killer movie that deals with such issues as writer's block, inexplicable dog-loving, the mob, and crazy girlfriends. I was entertained.

Saw this on a Sunday afternoon. The theater was about 1/4 full. As the movie progressed, people got up and left--there is a lot of blood, but you come to understand that it is over the top fake blood. You can close your eyes when someone is about to be slaughtered! Those of us who stayed really enjoyed it--very strange and funny. Great acting and dialogue, We laughed out loud countless times. Smart, interesting, paradoxical. Way better than the worst movie we have seen this season, The Master.
