At least I have a plan. What is your big goal? All I see is a stoner who works in a convenience store.
In a convenience-based society. I am at the center of the action.

3 minutes have been cut on the Blu-ray version, most notably a scene between Franklin (Matt Lucas) and Dr. Sage Mennox (Dolph Lundgren, between 85:05 - 87:43 NTSC). That scene was present on the R1 US DVD. None of the Blu-rays (U.S., Norwegian or Australian editions) contain that scene. Australian DVD is also cut (88:24 PAL runtime).
However it is reported the German DVD may also be uncut (92:06 PAL runtime). See more »
Slightly over-sophisticated, but still peculiar and independent
The movie in question is a 2012 American black comedy directed by a famous video maker (Jonas Åkerlund) and tells the story of an odd obese Switzerland-fan (Franklin Franklin, distinguishably performed by Matt Lucas) who inadvertently kills his landlord. All the characters - in spite of their rank in society - are strange zanies, and even if briefly on screen, they are catchy thanks to good/distinctive actors such as James Caan, Johnny Knoxville, Billy Crystal, James Marsden, Peter Stormare, Amanda Plummer, Dolph Lundgren - first and foremost.
Apart from crazy moments and depictions, the plot contains several "correct" views on love, friendship, family relations etc, making it hectic and uneven at times, and there are some ending predictability related to the protagonist and bad guys. But as the movie is not long (around 1,5 hours), it is still catchy to watch and you will have your laughs and chuckles.
