Kind of shallow and Serial-esque. That kind of faux Newhart, Bob and Ray stuff that the Coen brothers are perenially skirting the edge of (when they skirt it). Actually the best part was probably the intro by one (and only) Eytan Mirsky. I guess I shall see the film next to see what they made of it. But poseur parodists are generally not my cup of tea (although I am of course quite the little wiseass).

Even if it not made on the screen, the script itself is one of the best thing I ever read.
