Felt like watching a random film while doing laundry tonight, so I left it up to the fates of Netflix recommendation's, decided that I'd watch the first film I ran into that was in and around the hour and a half mark voila - Flakes!
It's an intentionally quirky comedy where in the central question comes when a girlfriend asks her boyfriend, "Are you a musician that happens to work at a cereal bar, or a are you the manager of a cereal bar that happens to do a little music on the side?" It's a film about goals and responsibilities, lead off by Aaron Stanford in the lead of said musician, and the always delightful Zooey Deschanel as said girlfriend - and rounding out the cast is one of my favorites, Christopher Lloyd. In terms of light entertainment it's an entertaining enough little flick. It's fun, and I think that's all it's really aiming for - and thus it succeeds. Much like a bowl of your favorite cereal it'll satisfy you while you partake, but you'll find yourself hungry again for something substantial within a few hours.Flakes
