Plot: A group of friends trip in the desert.
Review: Crystal Fairy perfectly captures being sober while a bunch of hipsters get high (as a film student, I have experienced this firsthand a lot!) It states it’s a comedy but nothing funny really happens and everything. Also I can’t really stand movies where Americans go to a foreign country and act like it’s the country’s fault that it isn’t America. Asking prostitutes why they don’t have real jobs? Haha how engaging!
Also like Magic, Magic before it, it’s a departure for Michael Cera. The problem is that this isn’t a good new direction. I don’t know what the director somehow manages to take away all the charm of Cera, which worked in Magic Magic but ruins this one.
No after awhile it gets terrible and never really gets it back.
Trivia: The movie was 90% improvised because of course it was.
