Quirky little comedy that asks you to believe in the impossible. Some good chuckles and some sweet scenes between Plaza and Duplass, but nothing really of substance. But it's easy to sit through.

Great watch, will watch again, and do recommend. I love the philosophical discussions that happen in this movie, both explicitly and as part of the situations. I love the story within a story within a story aspect of the script structure, with multi-threading as well. While the roles are a little (by design) stock characters, their personalities grown and change and stay interesting while keeping their core tenants. The investigative style to the main story line intuitively delivers as a mystery, with proper drip-fed information and misleads. It all properly builds to a significant moment in the story where you begin to question things. I highly recommend this for fans of conspiracy, time-travel, mysteries, or just weirdos with wishful thinking.
