I kept waiting for something to happen, but nothing did. The description calls him a “lovable rogue” but he’s not. There is nothing likable about him. There were no jokes. There was no gritty realism like “Kids.” It’s a soggy pile of nothing. The half-a$$3d movie I made for my 10th grade English class was better - at least you could tell the cast was having fun. Avoid this and check out “Dazed and Confused.”

One of the worst movies I have ever seen. I have seen some really bad movies, but this is only the third time I have been unable to finish a movie. The story was all over the place and made no sense.

Horrible, did not finish. Entire movie is random scenes of Matt walking around stoned / drunk. That's it. That's the entire movie.

Really had no clue what story this movie is trying to tell other than bunch of scenes slapped together. Not funny, no drama, poor dialogue, nothing. Lots of skin, just about it. Haven't seen a movie this bad in a long time.

The best film of the year. Somewhere between naturalism and fantasy, an absurd look into the dream world of the less privileged. Honestly, if you don't recognize this as high brow art, following the traditions of Italian Neo-Realism or Brecht, you don't understand film.

Rich people, hypsters, wokesters, Karens, you will NEVER understand this film. You have to be poor to truly appreciate this. This is EXACTLY how average Americans dream. Of course if you made a fortune you would literally blow it up, because f*** you. People don't seem to understand how intelligent average people are, because they don't actually dream about getting rich, they dream about saying f*** you.

This film is brilliant. It has its pulse on the American public (perhaps the world public). It is optimistic about an undefeatable spirit of the average person that is smirking and giggling all the way to eternity, whether that "have's" like it or not.

Sometimes when reading comments you have to take it with a grain of salt because we all don't like what everyone else does. In this case, read the comments and heed them. Do not borrow this movie. I could have made something better by walking around Florida with a hand held camera. When you look at the cast and the premise it might seem like a cool little stoner flick on the surface. And the surface is as deep as it gets. I have no idea how Matthew McConaughey could have ever agreed to such a disaster as this, and lord knows why Jimmy Buffet would ever want to be associated with such drivel. If your idea of fun is watching a washed out pseudo author stumble around in a drunken pot induced haze then by all means, help yourself. Don't say I didn't warn you. Possibly the worst thing ever to come out of Hollywood.

I only gave it 1/2 a star because you can't register 0 stars. Save 2 hours of your life and don't bother watching it!
