Daniel Radcliffe's boner compass helps Paul Dano find his way home
Early reception to the Sundance premiere was mixed; Variety reported that a "continuous stream of audience members kept standing up and bolting for the door throughout the film", alienated by the film's bizarre premise. The Hollywood Reporter felt that "forming a counterpoint to all the bodily function knockabout, Dano and Radcliffe, both fully committing with delectable zeal, project a certain tragic fragility that adds heft to the proceedings."
The Directors, Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, also won the Best Director or Directing award in the U.S. Dramatic category at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.
Based on 22 reviews, the film has received an approval score of 73% on Rotten Tomatoes.
This off the wall comedy is like one of those movies where at first glance you were like WTF, but then after a few viewings of the trailers, especially this red band version, it quickly becomes one of those movies that just keeps growing on you.
