Review: There’s some creativity on display here, but the art isn’t always great and having the imagery coming out of Huck Finn’s head rather than both his and Tom Sawyers’ head betrays some of the imagination inherent in those characters.

Trailer Rating: B+ / B-

Review: (#1) The first trailer gives the impression to the audience that they are seeing something that may be quite different from anything they’ve seen so far. A strange farce of a heist film that could be quite compelling.

(#2) The second trailer removes some of the inventiveness of the original trailer and makes the film feel like it’s a standard issue indie comedy that doesn’t know how to sell itself or differentiate itself enough from its compatriots.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
