Jerry is that chipper guy clocking the nine-to-five at a bathtub factory, with the offbeat charm of anyone who could use a few friends. With the help of his court-appointed psychiatrist, he pursues his office crush. However, the relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn after she stands him up for a date. Guided by his evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog, Jerry must decide whether to keep striving for normalcy, or indulge in a much more sinister path.

This is based on a true story that I knew the investigators working on it and other similar cases. Some use what is mentioned in that link. Others use implants for hearing and vision, or specialty contact lenses, etc.

The boy's father was in the military and entered the mother and son in a study on augmented reality. They took a lump sum payment after first doing an infant development study and the other new study came up. It mimics schizophrenia but a variety of medical tests show it is not consistent with what goes on in real schizophrenia. The boy's mom at one point tries to explain she's a communications officer hearing things from all over and that there is a problem. The problem people catch it, change what she seems to say and the boy kills her.

A similar program to the one in this link that simulates schizophrenia was used on the boy. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/601336/disability-simulating-vr-promotes-empathy/

Marjane Satrapi of the graphic novel "Persepolis" directed this strange movie.

Wow, this is terrible, and I am usually a fan of "B movies" and ones with bleak humour. I turned this off maybe around the halfway point, as I stopped caring about the plot or any of the characters.

Dull and not funny. Constantly Flip Flops between wanna-be humor and wanna-be drama and never decides which it wants to be. If you still decide to watch and find yourself with this query "am I getting it", save your evening, stop it and realize that it's the film-makers themselves who didn't get what they wanted to make.

This movie is rated R for a good reason. It may start out rather light but its gets dark fast. I started watching this movie not knowing what I was getting into; it has Ryan Reynolds so it must be funny right?! I spent a good portion of the movie wondering what exactly I had gotten myself into but I couldn't justify turning it off because I had to know how it ends. If you decide to give this movie a go be prepared to ask yourself numerous times "what am I watching?". I wouldn't recommend this particular film for your next family movie night, I'd say its more of a wait til the kids are at a sleepover and in no danger of walking into a room just to see severed heads in refrigerators type of movie.

This is a campy movie that you have to watch when you are in the mood for a campy movie.

Though there is nothing funny about schizophrenia, this film employed dark, often gruesome, comedy, in exploring the delusional impulses that make a tiny minority of mentally-ill people do horrendous things. while (wilfully) not taking their meds. I doubt psychiatrists would appreciate the portrayal of the less-than-perceptive member of their profession in the film much. but I enjoyed the movie(and the whacky musical number at the very end).

If you're a fan of Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool, this is for you. Cooky and creepy!

You remember last week when you said that there was an invisible line that separates good from evil and you'd thought you crossed it and I said no no no you're a good boy?
