AltAss Ratings (On a scale of 1 to 5 asses)


Brilliant idea that is both entertaining and a smart commentary on our society.


Utilizes "smart" humor and good pace to advance the storyline quickly and efficiently.  Perhaps could have benefiited from some more complete character development but a great effort overall.


Real solid performances from Duchovny and Moore with very nice support from the smaller roles.


Without question a new idea for a film and very refreshing one at that.


Here is a movie that is funny, smart, sad, and an excellent indictment of where consumerism has taken industrialized nations in a global society.  This should definitely go to the top of your NetFlix queue.
