99-Word Movie Reviews: Swiss Army Man

Find someone to share your farts with.

The first scene of this movie is as follows: a castaway on a remote island is about to hang himself, when a corpse washes up on the beach and farts repeatedly – the castaway then rides the corpse across the ocean like a jet ski, propelled by its gas, all while singing along to the soundtrack. Also, the corpse is Daniel Radcliffe. It gets even better from there. This journey of human-corpse friendship and survival is delightful, moving and unrepentantly strange. Also, it has a phenomenal soundtrack. I laughed out loud throughout and was nearly in tears by the end.
