non-sensical film that reminded me of another ensemble film – 11:14. in both films you get pieces of a puzzle and are essentially asked to hold your judgment for the film’s ending. depending upon how well the pieces fit in the end, the film succeeds or fails. well, this one strung me along through the whole film without much to keep it afloat, and then it disappointed even more with its ending. 11:14 was entertaining and engaging while it was developing the mystery and the ending was icing on the cake. this was the opposite. jon favreau is on some wild goose chase and it’s not very interesting, but the audience hopes, at least, for some interesting conclusion to tie together all the little clues we’ve gotten along the way. in the end, though, the film seemingly takes the easy way out by essentially saying the aliens were behind it all. wtf? oh, bud cort (harold and maude) has a small role in the beginning of the film. anytime he shows up it’s noteworthy.
