Puppet your way into our portals for a lot more than 15 minutes as the Next 173 Project does some Malkoviching. This pic is remarkably creative and it’s often high-larious. It’s also one of the weirdest, saddest comedies of the past 30 years…or perhaps ever. There’s more than a little darkness and pain, which doesn’t always jibe with those explosive larfs. Director Spike Jonze and one of the world’s most talented screenwriters Charlie Kaufman were both making their first movie here (what a opening act!) and they never do quite balance the tone. Still, any movie that’s this unique, this openly horny and this gutsy about most of its casting choices is always going to pique our interest. So throw a can at an actor’s head and soothe your traumatized chimps (and also hunch down low and cheat on your spouse and try to score yourself some immortality and…) as we crawl our way through the mind of Malkatraz.

For The Record: Bad Teacher was released in 2011, not 2014. It was indeed a big hit by every measure. Sex Tape was a success worldwide, although not so much domestically.
