Writer’s Notion

At some point, the movie is pointless, meandering vanity plan attempts to trick the viewers to thinking it is cleverer than it has been. Based on the director himself, it has been styled to be one kind of (sorry for my word) dumb movie containing of dumb bits just the means to just make money in hanging out together with his friends.

What is even worse is the trailer trick that makes you into thinking that this is actually a different movie – and that is another worst kind of not telling the truth, you can tell because of your effort to lure the people away from the precious time and the hard-earned money. There is actually no point to about anything that happened. In the opinion of some as well, the art for “itself alone” sake is condescending towards the audience.
