"Well it was my mother's birthday and I was just trying to do something fun" - Evelyn
The metaphor gets old very quickly.
R.I.P. Anton but this is one of the most insane, pretentious, insane, pretentious, insane and pretentious film I've ever seen. It is pretentious in insane ways and the insane parts are highly pretentious. I don't think I have watched a film this anti-vegetarian since Troll 2. See? See how pretentious what I just said is? That's how pretentious the whole movie feels.
The things I do for Alexandra Daddario....See? Was that a real statement of frustration or just a cute little thing to say to be hip? That's what this whole movie is like, nobody knows because it isn't executed well. Did I notice that Dick Miller (old cranky guy in Gremlins) was in this because Joe Dante directed this? Yes, and that is the sort of pretentious shit that makes this movie a little annoying.
