| Not nearly as clever or funny as it thinks it is.
I think this sort of "so indie that it hurts" style isn't really for me. It frequently strikes me as pretentious, though in a much different way than art house movies, which I tend to enjoy. Perhaps it's better described as "arrogance", instead, because I often felt as though the people involved in this movie had something Important to impart to me, but it always struck me as being significantly less clever and funny than they thought it was. Admittedly, there were some pretty good parts to this movie, but they quickly wore out their welcome, as they became overplayed and done to death. The zombie infomercial, for example, went on waaaay too long, in my opinion. It felt like a good idea that was stretched to the breaking point, just to fill time. In fact, most of the movie was like this. What could have been a good short film was turned into a much-too-long (and slightly tedious) full-length movie, full of filler and pointless scenes. The constant pop culture references didn't really help, either, though I seem to be in the minority on that count. That's apparently one of the highlights for the other reviewers. So, who knows. Maybe I've stumbled upon a genre that simply doesn't resonate with me, and my opinions should then perhaps be taken a grain of salt, if you're a fan.
