Sure, not everyone will like it, but I enjoyed it.

Boring .

The protagonist is Lulu Danger, who works in a boring coffee shop with her boring weird husband, and boring weird associates.

It's uncomfortable and peculiar, but fascinating at the same time.

But most importantly why.. if your face remains stern and unchanged for the first 20 minutes then please just turn it off because each subsequent 10 minutes feels like a slow, laborious and tiring death.

I highly recommend it if you like flight of the concords, mighty boosh, toast of london etc. The music and they way it's used it really good too.

If you can get into that sort of thing then it is enjoyable to watch, Jemaine and aubrey plaza are fantastic as always.

this thing is just unwatchable.

It is disjointed in the best way.

Comedy I didn't smile once apart from Beverly is a woman's name, that's US Comedy for you when they laugh at anything, a lot of irrelevant Drama I had to skip through all the crap, bad acting or reading a bad script, very drawn out long play time, total garbage.

The best thing about this was the trailer, don't waste your time on the full length feature.

An unmitigated and unwatchable disaster.

Music is Lynch inflected and very enjoyable.

Comedy I didn't smile once that's US Comedy for you when they laugh at anything, a lot of irrelevant Drama 95%, it could be a good storyline not for Exorcist, very drawn out, bad acting or reading a bad script, total garbage

In no rush to go anywhere fast, as evidenced by multiple scenes of intense coughing fits, wind troubles and Sam Dissanayake's Adjay's disdain at not getting his stolen money returned, whether or not you will enjoy Luff Linn rests entirely on how you take it on face value, with Hosking uninterested in doing anything by the rule book as his game and quite hilarious cast show themselves willing to dive headfirst into this kooky world of lost love, fandom and cheesy onion rings.

If your weird it's worth the watch.

100% waste of time.

This may work in small doses over time but when its on screen for the majority of the movie it becomes tiresome and frustrating to watch.

What the Actual F----- :D :D so weird it becomes somewhat enjoyable .

Waste of time.

I enjoyed it.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz z zzzzzzzzzzz zzz

To match the strange story the drab sets and eighties bad fashion roll together and slowly smoke up into something hard to watch and hard to look away from.

I've watched this movie maybe a dozen times, and I've bought the DVD for two other people who also enjoyed it thoroughly.

Idk wtf I just watched but I enjoyed it.

Weird movie, maybe combined with the right drug this movie could be enjoyable.

Cheap comedy and unbearable.

The film is full of abhorrent characters who you simply have no interest in, it all seems very self indulgent and immature.

Was it a perfect easily digestible comedy ,, nope ,, it was unusual and very weird it becomes a bit enjoyable right at the end.

In amongst all the misfiring and drawn out jokes are absolute gems of comedy cold, a fantastic musical score by Andrew Hung while Plaza, Clement, Dissanayake and British comedian Matt Berry (as the wonderfully titled Rodney Von Donkensteiger) are an absolute blast, with the only real disappointment stemming from a misplaced Hirsch who just can't quite nail the tone of the film, while the usually scene stealing Robinson is sadly underutilized in a grunt filled role that only really comes to life once we get to witness Luff Linn's oft delayed magical show.

Ho hum.
