I imagine that this film was Michel Gondry's idea of a vacation after making 'Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind' and 'The Science Of Sleep' back to back. And though the fair was lighter and the volume on the eye candy was turned down, the movie still has a ton of heart. Mos Def and Jack Black make the perfect off beat odd couple and Mia Farrow and Danny Glover are both excellent in smaller roles.
Ultimately the movie is a warm, funny, heartfelt tribute to the art of film making. A well spent two hours.
