Synopsis

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. He hangs a rope around his neck and is about to give up when he spots something on shore that inspires a rejuvenated sense of possibility.

As Hank approaches this beacon of hope, he discovers it's the corpse of a man named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe). He uses the flatulent corpse to his advantage and takes him back home to the mainland. But they are still lost and Hank tries to search for scraps of food to survive. The two become friends and ultimately go on an epic and surreal adventure, battling violent bears along the way. Hank also tells Manny about his love life and their goal is then to reunite with her.

  • 1 star "Really bad trip. It attempts to convince the audience that it has substance, but this is very shallow. And it tries to trick the audience into sympathizing with a creep. Further done in by one of the worst endings ever. If someone recommends this film to you, kill them."
  • 5 stars "Finally something original. Badass movie right there."
  • 1 star "Intriguing idea but the filmmakers didn't know what to do with it. And they certainly didn't know how to end it...that ending was TERRIBLE!"
