"At its best, this script has an almost otherworldly buoyancy, propelled by an idiosyncratic levity
marked by the world being several degrees divorced from conventional reality. In the wrong hands,
that could be a disaster, but there's a deft level of control present in the handling of the script's wonky
tone and delivery. Dialogue is peppy and often hilarious despite its staginess, with a focus on absurd
bluntness over more realistic dialects. It's absolutely a gamble prioritizing humor over any actual
coherence, but the choice mostly works out of sheer commitment to the bit, sometimes reaching the
highs of something as specific and distinct as a Wes Anderson picture." - The Black List
