This movie is awkward and full of moments where I have to remind myself that Gwyneth Paltrow had something to do with it, but I still love the central theme of wishing your dreams were mutable and/or real.
Last reviewer didn't leave much of a review. This movie is different. Know that going into and be ok with it and you'll love it. There's nothin inherently BAD about this film unless you don't enjoy films that explore unique topics (such as lucid dreaming). It's the story of a man who yearns to escape from his dull life and the lack of faith and constant criticism from his girlfriend and best friend.
Very enjoyable film, and has an ending that leaves you feeling like you just watched something with a purpose and a meaning. I don't know, maybe it's a love it/hate it kind of a movie but I definitely loved it. Martin Freeman is a really great actor!
i got this movie via netflix, and then just had to own it. i happen to like these kind of quirky, cerebral dramas, and i really love Martin Freeman.
i personally wouldn't call it a "dramady" though - any humor is pretty... dark...? and there are a lot of pretty tension-filled scenes where there are arguments between Martin's character and his gf - which often result in insults being thrown... i think where people are getting the "dramady" from is Freeman and Pegg and DeVito having the staring male roles...
