The trouble with the movie appears like it is styled to provoke and also to shock. This attempts to extrude laughter into dramatic and harsh states without entering the restrictions of a dark comedy film. Tripping and drugs play a major role in the film. It is a nature of mystic. Relationships, sex and friendships of the brotherly kind also desired to have a major part in the movie, though uneven, it takes the guide and creates a lifelong friendship that seems like it is a reason for some simple jokes just like blood coming from a nose that is dripping in somebody’s drink or vomiting in church during mass on Christmas Day.
