Like/Don't Like: Um. Well. Okay, yes, I'm on board with this.
As a general rule I'm not much for movies with excessive vomiting or other gross-out humor. I'm a sensitive soul. And I usually max out with a Jared Hess movie about an hour into them.
But there were several times during this movie when I laughed loud and hard. So yes, I liked it. I liked it mostly because of Jemaine from Flight of the Conchords, who played a sci-fi writer. And Sam Rockwell, who plays essentially the same character he played in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - which is not a bad thing.
The story is sparse, and also irrelevant because the whole point of these types of movies is to have a succession of random scenes that show off funny characters and non-sequiturs. If you know this going in you'll love it. Especially the scene where we learn how to make up sci-fi names. It is hilarious and also dead-on.
