Life is an adventure. Don't blow it.
Jimmy is young man who was born without an immune system and has lived his life within a plastic bubble in his bedroom... who pines for the sweet caresses of girl-next-door Chloe. But when Chloe decides to marry her high school boyfriend, Jimmy -- bubble suit and all -- treks cross-country to stop her. Swoosie Kurtz, as Jimmy's overprotective mom, co-stars along with Fabio, who portrays the leader of a religious cult.

I remember seeing commercials of this one on TV, and looked interesting, but just never got around to seeing it in its entirety until tonight.
I gotta admit, I didn't expect it to be so funny! It's one of those random encounters adventure with strange likeable characters like Harold & Kumar (2004) and Dude, Where's My Car? (2000). It was done just after Donnie Darko (2001). There's a lot of familar actors in this one. The pacing is really good too with non-stop randomness. It's one to pop in for a quick fun cheesy ride. Five Hundred Dolla!

Pretty much Pee Wee's Big Adventure with a boy in a bubble.

Pretty good comedy. It definitely is better than most comedies now. It's very random but in the end everything has its place. I found it a bit odd to see Jake Gyllenhaal in a comedy.Yet I quite enjoyed him. His character is likable even though I have to admit that it is a bit too much cartoony :D Final verdict: I had fun with this one :-)
