A rebellious young man. With his own version of the future. And his own fantasy of love.
An Innuit hunter races his sled home with a fresh-caught halibut. This fish pervades the entire film, in real and imaginary form. Meanwhile, Axel tags fish in New York as a naturalist's gofer. He's happy there, but a messenger arrives to bring him to Arizona for his uncle's wedding. It's a ruse to get Axel into the family business. In Arizona, Axel meets two odd women: vivacious, needy, and plagued by neuroses and familial discord. He gets romantically involved with one, while the other, rich but depressed, plays accordion tunes to a gaggle of pet turtles

I couldn't make it through. Not involving at all. Between the slow story that involved people having dreams are plenty of unnatural character waffle that sounds like a dodgy Tarrantino knockoff but with less swearing and pseudo intellectual meanings. From the start the Depp voice over tries to be deep and thought provoking about a fish - give me a break ... and that kind of sums up the feel and intention of this movie . Not very funny for a comedy either. There is a decent movie in here somewhere maybe, but it's too draining an experience to look. Stimulating plot is few and far between. Every scene made me not care more than the last. Quirky characters for the sake of it.
