I just love Alexander Skarsgard. So he was 100 % the reason that I bought this DVD. And I thought he was wonderful in his part as the depressed transvestite. So for his contribution only I am so glad that I got this movie. I will admit that the overall plot was a little strange and often somewhat hard to follow. But in general, I did like the quirky performances. It certainly was like no other movie I have ever seen.

The "plot": A young Swedish screenwriter has writer's block, until a crazy woman (portrayed by Lolita Davidovich) takes him on a thoroughly insane road trip, giving him material about which to write. In a parallel plot, a group of psych patients, including a 6'6" transvestite, are being transported to Las Vegas by a hitman/chauffeur to participate in their therapist's (portrayed by John Larroquette) highly publicized book release and reality TV program.

Parts of this strange offering were mildly amusing. Lolita essentially steals the show with her off-the-wall characterization of a lunatic who is trying to help the young Swedish author. Some of the situations are somewhat clever and amusing in their utter absurdity. However, taken as a whole, this is a complete mess. It just doesn't make much sense, and making the matter even worse, the real author of this screenplay claims that it is all true and actually happened to him. To insult an audience with a ridiculous, disjointed plot is one thing, but to then claim that it is all true simply strains credibility beyond tolerable limits.

Several things are obvious by the "Making of..." special featurette: the actual writer/director (Bjorne Larson) has unlimited ego and gall. Such attributes would be invaluable in getting funding for such a disjointed project and then talking some well-known actors (including those above as well as Julie Benz, Greg German, etc.) into participation. Watch this featurette very carefully and you will get some valuable insights into how this mess became reality. Observe John Larroquette and see if you can't detect a lot of regret in ever signing on in the first place. Of particular interest is the part in which the interviewer asks all the major players individually, "What is this movie about?"....

It was a kind of funny movie, not what i expected at of Alexander Skarsguard, but I know this is one of his older flims. I would recomend the movie for a one that just want to see something different. He just looked kind of hilarious being 6'4 woman LOL!

I hate when they make movies with the same titles, I was actually trying to order the movie of the same title with Daniel Radcliffe and was thoroughly confused when I realized it wasn't the movie I wanted. Never the less, it was my mistake and no one else's, and I did enjoy it even though it was somewhat odd. I probably won't be keeping it as it wasn't really to my taste, but I can see why some people liked it and others didn't. It's a hit or miss for the most part and depends on the person.

It must be a California thing. Who goes on a road trip to see their therapist? You have to totally suspend any reality for this film. It is just way out there. I have to believe mush artistic license had to be taken with the "True Story" this is based on. Anybody with a brain would've called the cops. As such, it is worth is for 2 reasons; John Laroquette and Alexander Skarsgard's performances. I think they should have never said it was a "True Story", wackier fiction plots have done well.

This movie is horrible. I sat through it until the end figuring it had to get better but it only got worse. Alexander Skarsgard's good looks are hidden by his cross-dressing so there is nothing to redeem this fiasco. The interviews with the people involved in the project were funny as Bjorn couldn't even tell us what it was about. Don't waste your time on this one.

I love this movie because it is funny. It also has a great cast including one of my favorite Swedish actors and the storyline is so off the wall that it is really funny movie. It is one of my favorites.
