I just didn't get it. Not funny, not very interesting, and when it ended I just went, "Huh??"

This film is described as a comedy, but I didn't find anything funny about it. At the end, I just thought what and why?

Salma Hayek had a disappointing role in this poor flick. Always like John Lithgow.

I found the premise of this movie to be intriguing, but it simply failed to execute. It was neither funny nor thought provoking. Even though I checked this out from the library for free, I still feel like I want my money back.

This movie was very mismarketed upon its theatrical release. I can see why people were caught off-guard by it. I loved it, but it's a very challenging and unpredictable film and one that requires some thoughtful discussion after it concludes.

Ambiguous ending. Supposed to be a comedy. Found nothing funny about it. A dark movie. Big disappointment.

This movie was okay. However the ending was pointless though seeing Selma Hayek just drowning in the ocean. This movie really didn't make any sense.

This movie is misrepresented by the lack of warning about what it is. Very disturbing and not in a good way. Starts out out as a light philosophical borderline comedy, and after the mood is set, abruptly turns into a horror film which pointlessly ends in tragedy. A real downer, I think the creators are trying to make some sort of political statement, which is certainly lost in the presentation. After watching this movie, you may get the same queasy feeling as you might when you know someone just lied to you. The packaging says" MPAA rating R for language and a scene of violence" that is an understatement considering the build up.

Definitely NOT a comedy. Selma Hayek gives a good performance, the supporting cast gives what we would think rich southern Californians may be like. Not much of an arc in the movie other than they were trying to make you think about what's going on in the world. It fell short of what I thought it might have been about, wouldn't watch again.
