No, wait ...
... on second thoughts, DO make me laugh. After all, this film is described as "Hilarious" by Rolling Stone or something. "Two Thumbs Up"!
Well are you in for a slow-moving piece of mood music. Yes, if you keep in mind that it's about loneliness, etc. and there's a great performance by Bill Murray, and you have a couple of hours to kill without wanting any recompense, go ahead and watch it. It does succeed in immersing you in its molasses-paced arthouse study of whatever it is the critics said it was a study of, but it's hardly hilarious.
Sure, Murray might have turned in a great performance. But so what? It's like following a complete stranger around for a week, and not a terribly interesting one at that. His subtle performance is stretched out over too much time.
You might have guessed I don't have much patience for movies that don't go anywhere in two hours. You might also have guessed I'm not paid to watch stuff like this, but instead have to pay for the privilege. All I know is, I didn't enjoy it much, and I want my money back.
