Siegel™’s review published on Letterboxd:
look up the word idiot in the dictionary what do u think u'll find?!
um... a picture of me?
no! the definition of the word idiot, which is what u fucking are!
Robert Downey Jr pulls off the dual roles of cocky narrator and confused protagonist with perfect careless ease, Michelle Monaghan delivers her best ever performance as we constantly find out more about her, and Val Kilmer is consistently the highlight as a whole mood with the sharpest of wit.

I want u to picture a bullet inside ur head
