This is the weirdest movie I have ever seen. It had some really good parts and some cringe worthy, terrible parts. There was no "chemistry" between anyone. I feel like this movie could have been MUCH better if it had been "put together" properly. It feels like it was directed by two different people. Or maybe there was an executive producer that shouldn't of been involved. Heath did an excellent job. A lot of his manorisms were similar to how he acted as The Joker in The Dark Knight.

I loved it then and I love it now due to the only thing that matters, Heath's charmingly hilarious performance. He's a beautiful soul that absolutely made the world a bit easier to bear during the too short of time that we had the pleasure of enjoying his character. I know that I will never forget him. Therefore, I give it 5 stars.

Given the trailer, I expected better. The plot was pretty good, some of the special effects were pretty good, but characters were shallow, and the acting was . . . weak. I expected better for a movie with Heath Ledger and Matt Damon.
