Scott Marks 3:01 p.m., Dec. 12
Somebody took a perfectly good black comedy and grafted a fairy tale onto it. The results aren’t pretty. What could have been a delicious dissection of one poor bastard’s attempt to become cool by whoring out his upscale home for party-fueled destruction winds up as an affirmation of true love and human gratitude. “Hey man, thanks for letting us thrash your folks’ place!” Plus, a dog mates with a drunk dude’s face. Directed by Nima Nourizadeh; with Thomas Mann and Oliver Cooper. 2012.
