Clint Says: Drop everything and go see this movie now
First off, this film is not for everyone. It is weird, quirky, off the beaten path, and not palatable for mass consumption, but it is incredible.
When I saw the trailer for this movie and learned that it was from the Lonely Island crew I was nervous that it was going to be another POPSTAR: NEVER STOP NEVER STOPPING. While POPSTAR wasn't bad, if this was going to be another movie of the same ilk I'd rather just skip it.
Then I saw the movie.
In my life I've cried at the movies probably 10 times or less. The climax of this film is so powerful and heartwarming that it had my eyes watering.
Once you get past the weirdness and the seemingly juvenile story, you will experience a film that is truly extraordinary. This is one of the most unique, creative, imaginative, and beautiful films I have ever seen. The story will break your heart and have you cheering with joy.
Sure it is peppered with stupid humor, (come on, this is from the same people that gave us the songs D*** IN A BOX and I'M ON A BOAT), but it also tells the story of the journey of self-healing and the strength of family in a powerful and real way.
Can you imagine a world where the Lonely Island crew wins an Oscar? It might become a reality sooner rather than later.
If you get a chance to see this film do it. You'll probably hate it, but if you don't, you'll love it.
