Have you ever wondered what it was like to do drugs but didn't actually want to do drugs? or risk getting in trouble for having drugs? or losing your job because of drugs? Then this movie is for you. It's like whoever created this movie threw a bunch of random ideas at the wall and see what sticks, and then went with that, plus everything else that didn't, the end result being a movie that only Will Farrell could star in. The story is one that gets weirder, but more interesting at the same time, with a small segment you just have to grind your way through, the kind of movie where the last few ideas blew the budget, so they had to improvise. a good chunk of the film had excellent special effects and comedy sequences, while having quite a few of what could only be described as the cinematic equivalent of fingerprints on an otherwise clean sheet of glass (referencing the lizard people). Then again, this film is from 2009, CGI has come a LOOONG way since then. Either way, when you have a movie as loosely strung together as this one, I guess it is quite unfair to expect a cinematic marvel, so just sit back and enjoy, have a good laugh, and keep your expectations low.
All in all, what they did well, they did REALLY well, but took a toll elsewhere. I do feel like they could have gone down a better path near the end, but I'm not about to sit here and complain for the next hour, as my complaining will not change anything about this film, and will only waste your time to read.
